Chapter Summary

A love of Egyptian art, the eye of the connoisseur, and scholarly acumen all come together in the work of Jack Josephson, who has greatly advanced our knowledge and appreciation of Late Period sculpture. The first of the three statues is undoubtedly the least well known. It was briefly mentioned and illustrated with a single photo- graph in a preliminary report on the Brooklyn Museum Expedition's first four seasons of work in the Temple of Mut at Karnak, where it is described as "a rare representation of the goddess in the guise of a cat". The second note concerns the by now well-known limestone statue of a nurse and child found by W.B. Emery in the Sacred Animal Necropolis at Saqqara in 1968 and now on display in the Cairo Museum.
