Information

Scaraboid amulet with one side in the shape a wedjat eye that represented the left eye of the god Horus, a potent symbol that promoted healing. The flat underside is inscribed with hieroglyphs that mean "living for Amun" (ankh-s-amun). Pierced through the length for suspension on a ring or string. Very fine technique and perfect preservation.
