Thoth Standing

Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description While Egyptian jewelry was worn in daily life, most of the examples known today came from tombs, where they adorned mummies. Amulets provided magical protection for the wearer in both life and death. The consistent color and workmanship of the 13 light-blue faience figures of gods owned by the Walters (this one and Walters 48.1676, 48.1677, 48.1679, 48.1680, 48.1684, 48.1701, 48.1702, 48.1705, 48.1708, 48.1709, 48.1710 and 48.1711) suggest that they came from the same workshop. Represented here is the ibis-headed Thoth.
