Statuette of Sobek, Ancient Egyptian, -664

Statuette of Sobek, Ancient Egyptian, -664, Art Institute of Chicago: Arts of Africa

Here the crocodile god Sobek, associated with water and the Nile River, wears an elaborate crown adorned with horns, feathers, and a uraeus (sacred serpent). Egyptian gods were commonly depicted with human bodies and animal heads. The animal referred to the god’s personality or characteristics, not his or her appearance. For example, the crocodile head of Sobek alludes to his fierceness.

Statuettes like these were offered to the gods to ask for their help or in thanks for their assistance. Gift of Henry H. Getty, Charles L. Hutchinson, and Robert H. Fleming Size: 16.7 × 4.5 × 5 cm (6 5/8 × 1 7/8 × 2 in.) Medium: Copper alloy

Comédie-Royale / Jean III (1912). Leonetto Cappiello (Italian, 1875-1942)

Poster. Printer: Imp. P. Vercasson, Paris

“Sacha Guitry (1885-1957) was one of the major celebrities of the French theater; here, he both wrote and starred in Jean III at the Comédie-Royale, a play in which a young prince, who just happens to dabble in amateur theatricals against the wishes of his family, jumps at the chance to play himself in a local production, with expected hilarious results. The play opened on March 7, 1912.

Cappiello’s depiction of Guitry is grounded in the caricature tradition, catching the actor’s dashing stage presence with acute insight.”
