Element of a Pectoral


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This element, probably from a pectoral, was made by attaching two flat faience plaques to a plaster core. Over these were attached plaster figures in relief, covered with gold foil. There is a dark adhesive material on the bottom edge and both side edges of the piece. On the front two figures on a boat raise hands toward a central scarab with extended legs. Shown on the back are the four sons of the god Horus, who protected different parts of the body in the Netherworld.
