From shop near us that sells heaps of gorgeous Egyptian imports... I have some serious statue ho-ing to do!
Paneb and I have had our eyes on these babies for a long time, and finally decided to indulge!
First Paneb's pick, the big beautiful black biq!
After 4 years, this huge hunk of Egyptian alabaster is finally mine! (and Dad's of course :) )
Paneb holds both together!
As he wound my statue carefully in layers of bubble wrap, the owner of the shop told me this peice is very valuable. He shook his head sadly and told me he can't bring alabaster into the U.S. since 9/11, because they man-handle his merchandise and it never comes through intact.
I assured him I would give Him a very loving home. :)
