The Frog lamp is unique to Egypt between the 2nd and 4th century AD. This Hellenistic style; wide shoulders, keel shaped body and splayed nozzle gives way to a highly stylized frog-an important icon in maintaining the health of the Nile River. The carnelian eyes are symbolically noteworthy as well. In its natural state, the carnelian rock looks like a female breast, therefore, the Egyptians believed it to be of feminine character.

Egypt - 2nd to 4th century AD
