Ba Bird 3D Model
Associated with the deity Sokar, images like this frequently decorated funerary equipment in the tombs of Ancient Egypt. These human-headed images represent the ba bird, an aspect of the soul believed to fly out of the tomb. Egyptologists suspect the ba was based on the bat, which lived in the tombs and flew out at dusk. This sculpture, made of wood and paint, is from the Late Period, 712-332 BCE.
