Egyptian compartmentalized limestone vessel, Late Period, 600 a.C.

This Egyptian limestone vessel is composed of two rectangular compartments and lids decorated with a beetle in black paint. It is common to find the beetle as a decorative motif in egyptian objects since it is considered as a protective amulet. The fly is a less popular decoration but also has the power of protection.
