Does anyone know what this statue is and what it's origin might be? I saw it in an old friends display and can't find the friend to ask him. Thanks for your help.

It sort of reminds me of Egyptian statues...it might be Horus - the god of the sky..

I think you are right JuneyBug...I wish I could find out more information on this particular statue. I know it is very old and has no visible markings on it as to artist or where it came from or where it belongs. I will keep researching it though. Thanks for your insight.

Check out this site. These types of statues I've seen most usually associated with burial chambers.
