Two fingers amulet, representing the index and middle fingers with nails and joints defined. Excellent technique. This type of amulet only appears in Late Period burials and is frequently found on the torso of mummies near the embalming incision, perhaps representing the fingers of the embalmer. Purchased at an auction in London on 13 July 1903.
