A Lioness, seated upon a throne, as Queen

Lioness-seated-on-throne

“An Egyptian Caricature” engraving on limestone, bought in Thebes, by Dr. Henry Abbott who interpreted the three thousand year old picture “as a lion seated upon a throne, as king, receiving from a fox, personating a high-priest, an offering of a goose and a fan.”
