    Pair of disc and amphora earrings, Hellenistic (Ptolemaic), c200 BC. Earrings with garnet amphorae with garnet, emerald, and pearl chain pendants. The long chain could have been worn either round the back of the neck or pinned across the chest. The amphorae have dolphin-shaped handles and are suspended from discs inlaid with garnets, topped with a stylized crown. The design of the crown conforms to the so-called 'Crown of Isis', a common motif in jewellery of the period: Ptolemaic queens were assimilated with the goddess Isis and both were associated with this type of crown which consists of a sun-disc capped by two feathered plumes that were originally inlaid with another material, now lost. The crown motif rests on the horns of a cow, a symbol usually associated with the Egyptian goddess Hathor. On these earrings the horns form a pattern beneath the plumes, and a garnet is placed in the crown. Jewellery with Egyptianized details, such as these earrings, is found throughout the Hellenistic world and was not exclusively manufactured in Egypt where these earrings were made. GR, 1906.4-11.1 (Jewellery 2331)

    Sigismunda Mourning over the Heart of Guiscardo 1759 This was Hogarth's most deliberate attempt to prove that modern English painters could handle heroic themes as convincingly as the revered Italian Old Masters. His chosen subject was the moment from Boccaccio's "Decameron" when the tragic princess discovers the murder of her lover after the murderers send her his heart in a golden goblet. The work was received with such harsh criticism that Hogarth all but abandoned painting for the last years of his life. Canvas; 1004 x 1265 mm N01046
