The faience has cracked, and one side is badly misshapen, but it is clear that the modelling was originally very good. Was positioned lying on the breast of the mummy in the thoracic region. 1 of 32 amulets removed from a mummy on 8 December 1966 at Aintree University Hospital. The mummy was in a damaged state and it's accession history had been lost. The mummy was first X-rayed then cut apart for research purposes.
