Statuette of a Hedgehog

This cute hedgehog figurine from blue faience with dark spotted back is an exceptionally charming creation of the Egyptian small plastic sculpture of the Middle Kingdom. All details are excellently reproduced. As burial objects, the small hedgehog replicas probably had symbolic significance: as soon as a buried person awakened from hibernation, he or she was to experience the resurrection. Original: National Museums in Berlin - Prussian Cultural Heritage. Egypt, Middle Kingdom, 12th Dynasty, c. 1850 BC Glazed pottery, height 4.5 cm.
