"The Ezeldeen Taha Eldarir Collection": Ancient Resource Auctions and a dead Grandfather's Collection (May 4th 2014)

And here's another piece from the Eldarir-grandfather collection: Ancient Resource Auctions Glendale, CA, USA sold May 04, 2014

Lot 0031A  A stunning Egyptian limestone stele, Third Intermediate Period,
Limestone stele depicting a winged sun disk with pendant cobras appearing above three registers, each depicting a pair of rams sniffing lotus flowers. The ram with curved horns had been associated with the cult of Amun since Dynasty XI and likely carries the same association with this stele, H: 11 3/8 in (29cm), W: 10 in (25.3 cm). A fantastic example of Egyptian cult worship.
Ex Ashraf Eldarir Collection, USA, acquired prior to 1948. Ashraf Eldarir's grandfather was a friend of Prince of Egypt Omar Tosson, with whom he shared a passion for archaeology. The collection was formed during the 1930s-1940s, mostly as gifts from Prince Tosson. The collection was moved to the United States in 1948 and remained in the family's possession until the present day.
