Sadigh Gallery's Ancient Egyptian Scarabs
The Egyptian word for beetle was 'Kheper' which meant to exist. Scarabs were worn to assure continued existence, both in this world and the next. Scarabs were once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the Mummy. Some were worn by the deceased on a necklace, or mounted in gold settings as a pectoral. Heart scarabs provided the bearer with the assurance that they would be found "True of Voice" and accepted into the eternal afterlife by the God Osiris.

Sadigh Gallery's Phoenician Artifacts Collection
http://sadighgallery.wix.com/phoenician The Phoenicians were enigmatic people, who left little in the way of written records. Much of what we know of them from ancient times was recorded by Greek and Roman historians who mentioned their seamanship and shrewd business dealings. The Phoenicians were skilled artisans noted for their fine crafts, often "borrowing" a basic idea or technology and improving on it. The craft of glass making was raised to a fine art by Phoenician artisans, and they may have been the first to develop blown glass. Their terracotta vessels and pots often show a thoughtful refinement of shape, as do their votive statues.

Sadigh Gallery: Ancient Celtic Artifacts Collection
http://www.sadighgallery.com/celtic.html Our Celtic collection features coins, Celtic ring money, crosses, various jewelry including rings and bracelets, chains, garment pins, swords and so much more. Far from the barbarians with which they were often identified, the Celts had a highly developed society. The basic structure of Celtic society divided the people into three classes: the royal clans, the warrior aristocracy, and the common people, often referred to as Freemen. In addition, though slaves did constitute a small percentage of the population, slavery was generally frowned upon in Celtic society. However, though Celtic social structure appeared loose and primitive to the Romans and Greeks, the Celts were by no means the "savage race" which the Roman scholars often slurred them by. Archeological evidence has shown the Celts to be an advanced race, for their era. They made use of chain mail in battle and utilized machines for reaping grain. There is also evidence that the Celts had begun extended roadways across Europe centuries prior to the Roman Empire's much-lauded road system, and it is widely believed by historians that it was from the Celts that the Romans and Greeks first learned the use of soap. http://sadighgalleryceltic.edicy.co

Sadigh Gallery: Crosses in Antiquity Pt. 1
Sadigh Gallery has a wide variety of crosses from various cultures such as Egypt (Coptic Period), Holy Land, Byzantine Empire, Africa, Asia and so much more. The cross is the sacred emblem of the Christian faith and is a symbol of redemption, signifying Christ's death on the cross for man's sins. The use of the cross as a symbol of faith goes back at least as far as the 100's AD. In 313 AD, Roman Emperor Constantine's Edict of Milan established the Christian belief in just one God over all as the dominant faith for an Empire destined to influence humanity everywhere for centuries to come. In the Byzantine Empire, ancient Greek and Roman culture was preserved and Christianity flourished. With its Christian faith, Roman traditions and Greek culture, the Empire served as a connecting link between ancient and modern European civilization.

Sadigh Gallery Cylinder Seals Collection
Cylinder Seals were created in the Near East around 3,000 B.C. They were carved from stones and the engravings on them, inverted, were always commemorative and administrative in nature. They were pressed into wet clay to leave an impression of their design. They were used to seal vessels, consign goods and usually placed on door latches of storerooms to ascertain whether the contents stored within had been tampered with or not. The hardened impression became a permanent record, a sign of ownership. The designs on the seals usually depict a narrative which is often religious or political in nature.

Sadigh Gallery's Phoenician Glass Artifacts Collection
Sadigh Gallery's Phoenician Glass Artifacts from our Recent Acquisition - July 2013 One of the industries greatly affected by the Phoenicians was the manufacture of glass. It is said that the substance was first discovered accidentally--that when a group of sailors, possibly Phoenicians, who, in their effort to use their cargo of natrum (subcarbonate of soda) as cooking utensils, melted the portion of it by the fire, mixing with the siliceous sand. As a result it produced a streak of glass. The story goes that this was the first production of Phoenician glass. One of this most popular form of Phoenician glass artifacts is the Amphoriskos. The amphoriskos (literally, little amphora) is a miniature of the amphora, a popular shape used throughout antiquity, and was probably used as a storage vessel for oils, perfumes or cosmetics. Glass amphoriskos were common in the sixth and fifth centuries BC. They were made by core-forming, which was probably the earliest method used for manufacture of glass vessels and remained the usual way of making small vessels of various shapes until about the first century BC. A core of sand and dung was modeled into the desired shape, attached to a cane and dipped into molten glass, then rolled on a flat surface to obtain a smooth finish. Various techniques were used in decoration. The most common was the application of different colored threads of glass, trailed around the vessel while it was still hot and molten. When the piece was finished and cooled the core was removed. http://sadighgallery.wix.com/phoenician https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sadigh-Gallery-Ancient-Art/119562098112093

Sadigh Gallery Pre-Columbian Artifacts Collection: Mayan Artifacts
Sadigh Gallery Pre-Columbian Artifacts Collection: Mayan Artifacts The Mayan culture, beginning in Central America hundreds of years before the birth of Christ, became the first highly developed civilization in the Western Hemisphere. The Maya, as early as 600 BC, had developed a sophisticated calendar, a system of picture writing, a style of architecture, sculpture and metalwork, as well as a highly organized government. Without question, the Maya greatly influenced the later development of Latin America. The Mayan civilization was the height of Pre-Columbian culture. They made significant discoveries in science, including the use of the zero in mathematics. Their writing was the only in America capable of expressing all types of thought.

Sadigh Gallery Antiquities Collection: Persian Ceramics
http://sadighgallerypersian.moonfruit.com Sadigh Gallery Antiquities Collection: Persian Ceramics Pottery making in the Iranian Plateau dates back to the Early Neolithic Age (7th millennium BCE) with the production of coarse, unglazed wares. Later wares were made from earthenware clays with a layer of white slip (engobe). They were covered by transparent lead glazes and colors were added with oxides. Persian ceramics matured with time into more elaborate styles and techniques.

Sadigh Gallery's Asian Jade Statue Pt. 1
"Stone of heaven" is a term used by the Chinese to describe what they view as the most precious of gems - Jade. To understand the importance of Jade to the Chinese is to gain insight into their culture and history. Jade is woven into the very fabric of Chinese ethos and it has been from the earliest Neolithic cultures that thrived in what became known as China. The appeal of Jade to the ancient Chinese was due to its toughness, luster, multiplicity of colors and the transformation it underwent when heated. The burning of Jades in pre- burial cremation ceremonies was essential for members of the ruling class in many areas and periods of ancient China. Confucius compared the qualities of Jade to those of a cultured man. In the modern dynasties (the Ming, 1368-1644, and the Qing, 1644-1912) Jade work became more self-conscious and referential. Often jades alluded to a work of literature or some other aspect of China's cultural heritage such as fanciful and whimsical mythical beasts). Alternatively, they might involve a sort of witticism known as a rebus. Rebuses are hidden meanings or verbal puns arising from characters that have double meanings; they usually refer to auspicious signs or wishes. http://sadighgalleryasian.moonfruit.com

Mesopotamia is used for the area watered by the Euphrates and Tigris and its tributaries, roughly comprising modern Iraq and part of Syria. Mesopotamia has no natural boundaries and is difficult to defend. The influence of neighboring countries is large. Throughout the history of Mesopotamia trade contacts, slow diffusion of foreign tribes and military confrontations have been of great influence. http://www.sadighgallery.com/mesopotamian.html

Sadigh Gallery's African Antiquities Collection: Dogon Tribe Bronze
http://sadighgalleryafrica.moonfruit.com Sadigh Gallery's African Antiquities Collection: Dogon Tribe Bronze. The 250,000 Dogon people live on a large plateau, with most of the villages situated on cliffs to the North and the East. According to Dogon oral tradition, the tribe settled in this area between the 14th and the 15th centuries, after escaping from the Mande Kingdom. Legend has it that a snake led them to the cliff at the southern end of the plateau, where they overwhelmed and usurped the local Tellem and Niongom populations the Dogon livelihood is based on agriculture concentrated in fields at the edge of the cliff, where water is scarce, but enough for occasional irrigation. Dogon social and religious organizations are closely interlinked and out of these arose for principle cults, which accounts for the riches and diversity of Dogon culture. Dogon figures are predominantly associated with the ancestor cult. They are carved for a personal or family use or, if they commemorate the foundation of a community, are worshipped by the village. Bombou-Toro style figures are associated with an area in the center of the cliff. They are carved as hermaphrodite figures or couples, and are thought to illustrate events in the complex Dagon mythology.

Sadigh Gallery: Ancient Egyptian Amulets
Sadigh Gallery: Ancient Egyptian Amulets Amulets were made of almost every material available to the Ancient Egyptian. The finest were carved of stone: lapis lazuli, carnelian, turquoise, feldspar, serpentine and steatite. Metals were used, in addition, gold being the most valuable, but copper, bronze and iron also were prized. Wood and bone were sometimes used. Of all materials, however, the greatest number of amulets was made out of faience. Some amulets that were purely protective derived their power by evoking the Gods. For instance, if you wore a cat amulet around your neck, you carried with you the protection of the cat Goddess, Bastet. Amulets worn by women to protect them during childbirth often showed the image of the frog Goddess, Heket, who was believed to protect the women in labor. Other protective amulets, not directly related to the Gods, got their power by sympathetic magic. If you wore an amulet in the shape of an Ankh, you would continue to live because you wore the hieroglyph for "life". There were also amulets especially for deceased. They were placed on the mummy to assure that it remained intact and powerful in the next world. These funerary amulets were usually similar to those worn by the living. By far, the most numerous of all amulets found in excavations is the Eye of Horus. This as the highly stylized eye of the falcon God Horus. According to myth, Horus fought his evil uncle Seth to avenge the death of his father Osiris. In the battle, Horus' eye was torn to pieces, but by magic, Thoth, God of writing, assembled the pieces. Each element of the Eye of Horus represented a different fraction. Sadigh Gallery has a vast collection of authentic ancient Egyptian amulets available for sale.

Sadigh Gallery's Asian Amber Statues
Sadigh Gallery's beautiful collection of authentic Asian amber statues featuring various statues of Kylin, happy Buddha, dragons, monks, kuan yin and so much more. Amber is a hard translucent fossilized resin produced by extinct coniferous trees of the Tertiary period (a geologic period from 65 million to 2.6 million years ago). Amber comes in a variety of colors with yellow being the most common. Other colors include red (known as "cherry amber"), green and even blue. According to ancient Chinese sources amber from the Hukawng Valley was mined as early as the first century AD and shipped to Yannan Province in China. From there, burmite (Burmese amber) may have found its way along the Silk Road as far west as the Roman Empire, where amber was highly prized. http://sadighgalleryasian.moonfruit.com

An "Intaglio" is an engraved or incised figure in a hard material. The shapes of the gems cut in Rome or for the Romans do not differ much from those of the Hellenistic Greek world. Circular stones are perhaps less common and oval ones rather broader. The subjects chosen for engraving were notables, generals and emperors. Heads and figures of divinities are common, especially those most favored by the Romans or appropriate as signet devices like Fortuna. http://sadighgalleryroman.moonfruit.com

Sadigh Gallery's Collection of Ancient Silver Coins
This video contains Sadigh Gallery's collection of ancient silver coins from various cultures, such as ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, Byzantine, Persia, and Holy Land. Silver coins could justifiably be called the 'standard' coin of the ancient world, less common than copper and more abundant than gold. It filled the needs of the ancients for the bulk of all economic transactions. The heavy silver coin called tetradrachm was the universal trade coin of the Mediterranean lands and much of the Near East. Archaeologists have discovered 'merchant hoards' of silver coins in the ancient lands which contain coins from many different places. Such hoards and the frequency of countermarking (chop marks on the coins made by tools to test the purity of the silver) provide much information about ancient trade relations. Ancient silver coins range in size and weight tremendously, from the large, commemorative decadrachms to fractional coins fitting ten to the thumbnail. They also varied greatly in purity, though this is understandable considering the debasement of coins often was a reflection of centuries of economic decline. http://sadighgallerycoins.moonfruit.com

Sadigh Gallery's Ancient Egyptian Wall Fragments
Sadigh Gallery's Ancient Egyptian Wall Fragments. Scenes on stone surfaces were often cut into relief before painting or when not painted at all. There were two main types of reliefs: one consisting of raised relief, the other of sunken relief. In both types, chisels were used to cut around the outlines of figures. Then in raised relief, the stone of the background was cut away, so that the figures were left standing out from the surface. In sunken relief, it was the figures that were cut back within their outlines, leaving the surface of the background at a higher level. In both methods, the figures were modeled to a greater or lesser extent within their outlines. Traditionally, sunken relief was used on exterior walls and raised relief on interior walls, because bright sunlight has the effect of flattening raised relief and enhancing sunken relief. Figures carved on these walls are usually those of ancient gods, hieroglyphs and mythical animals. Visit http://sadighgalleryegypt.com for more information on ancient Egyptian artifacts
