is on a stunning relief featuring a bust of Ptah.  Roughly 16" inches square, inscribed with glyphs, and carved in deep relief this is a breath-taking and dynamic piece that would surely add to any distinguished collection.  Also presented this month from our UK and UAE galleries we have a double sided limestone plaque with a depiction of a falcon and a portrait head and a mesmerizing sarcophagus fragment depicting a head.  For additional information, images, and details on any of these pieces please click on the images below.
