I had a jeweler repair the headpiece back on her head which had come off decades ago.
AN EGYPTIAN BRONZE ISIS AND HORUS
LATE PERIOD TO PTOLEMAIC PERIOD, 664-30 B.C.
The goddess seated with her feet resting on an integral trapezoidal plinth, clad in a tightly-fitted sheath, her echeloned tripartite wig and vulture headdress crowned with a modius of uraei supporting cow horns framing a solar disk, offering her left breast to her divine son Horus seated on her lap, her left hand supporting his back, Horus wearing a cap-crown fronted by a uraeus, his side lock of youth with incised details.
This is an authentic ancient Egyptian bronze from circa 600 bc with a small piece of paperwork on bottom from the Hammer Galleries in NYC, whom I think was the brother of Dr Armand Hammer. The bronze comes with a small wood plinth (not sure of age) and the bronze is about 6.75" tall without the stand. You can see some some corrosion on the bronze in areas. The headpiece she wears which is a solar disc between horns has come off. Nice and rare.
