Ram-headed Demon


Wooden figure of a ram-headed demon that probably held a pair of snakes. Like a number of mortuary objects, it was covered in black resin. One of a group from the Valley of the Kings that have parallels in Book of the Dead vignettes and New Kingdom underworld books and mythological papyri.
