This object was obviously designed as part of a window. The subject of the sculpture is highly original and reflects the blending of Egyptian and Greco-Roman traditions. A horseman, who is none other than the god Horus, is stabbing his spear into a crocodile, the animal that symbolized the god Setekh. This strange combat represents the victory of Good over Evil.

A fragment of a window

Egyptian deities were never portrayed on horseback. This representation, which dates from the fourth century AD, reflects the influence of Greco-Roman models and of the Christian symbolism of Good conquering Evil. The scene in question is complete, although the object itself is not: it was undoubtedly part of a window, of which only the left part remains, with a section of molded frame. Several of the components of the scene (the horse's head and the crocodile's mouth) are joined to the frame for both technical and artistic reasons, contributing, with the sculpted scrolls, to the liveliness of the scene.
