Son of Horus Amulet

44.19.198

Currently not on display

Flat figure of the human form god Imsety (although has previosuly been described as Duamutef but the head is not obviously that of a jackal). One of an amuletic set of the Four Sons of Horus. Blue glazed faience with roughly painted red decoration that has now faded. By means of the two pierced holes this would have been stitched on to the mummy bandages or threading on to a a bead net placed over a mummy.
