Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The rectangular pectoral which has two holes for suspension. On one side of the pectoral is the solar boat depicted. Inside of the boat is the winged scarab as well as the moon disk and crescent combination, both are flanked by two standing baboons with adoration gestures. On the other side of the plaque, there are three image fields. On the far left is the god Atum, in the center is the solar falcon and on the far right is the god Re-Harakhte. Atum is named by the inscription as the Lord of the Sky, and the solar falcon as Re-Harakhte, Great God, and Living Lord of Heliopolis and the falcon-headed god just as Re-Harakhte. The sides of the pectoral are decorated with a grid pattern. The pectoral was probably produced during the Ramesside Period or the early Third Intermediate Period.
