Antiquities appraiser Max Bernheimer examines a beautifully cast bronze falcon in this video produced for Antiques Roadshow. The falcon was sacred to the God Horace and the cast, created during ancient Egypt's Late Period, contains in the hollowed interior, remnants of a falcon mummy. The falcon sports exquisite details in its feathers and eyes, as well as hieroglyphic markings which would have named the dedicant-- the person who gave the piece. Despite the falcon's broken tail, its value is still quite high.
