The relief is a sculptor’s trial piece representing an owl. The quality of the details and incisions allow us to perfectly identify a barn owl. The bird is turned to the right, its head depicted frontally.
Egyptian Art, Ptolemaic Period, 304–30 BC.
Formerly in the collection of Mr Nicolas Koutoulakis (1910–1996), Switzerland, acquired circa 1960
