Pectoral


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The shrine-shaped pectoral has a cavetto cornice at the upper edge. The front displays the kneeling goddesses Isis and Nepthys in the solar barque, each with one arm raised in a gesture of adoration. In the center was once an inscribed scarab, which is now lost. A winged sun-disk above the boat completes the scene. The back exhibits two enthroned gods--falcon-headed Horus and jackal-headed Anubis--supporting the now-missing scarab.
