An ancient Egyptian bronze and alabaster Ibis with an alabaster body and bronze legs, neck, and head.

Late Period, ca. 700-30 BC.
Height: 5 1/4 in. (13.3 cm).

The ibis was especially associated with Thoth, one of the most important Egyptian gods. Thoth played a role in maintaining the universe, along with his wife Maat (truth). Thoth was also heavily associated with scribal procedures and writing, and by extension with magic, science, and judgment.
