Unknown Language: Inscription on a statuette (image)


New Member

I apologise for not sticking to the forum rules and not being able to provide the actual text I'd like your help translating, but I only have a picture of a statuette I'm considering purchasing.

Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

Could anyone help me figure out the meaning of the inscription, please?

Thank you!

    Hi there,

    This looks very interesting! While I cannot read it or say for certain what language it is, it reminds me of Egyptian hieroglyphs. The signs look like they could be Egyptian hieroglyphs, or something related to them. In addition to the similarity to hieroglyphs, the symbols are in an oval inscription very like the ancient Egyptian cartouche: Cartouche - Wikipedia I hope this helps to point you in the right direction!

    Kind regards :)
