Maat


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The amulet made of a bright blue glass-like faience (?) was made in a mold with some later working. It represents Maat, the personification of Truth, as a woman seated with knees drawn up. There is a hold in the head to attach an ostrich feather, the hieroglyph for her name. A loop projects from the back of her head for suspension.
