This custom museum display showcases an absolute masterpiece, a Set of 2 Authentic Faience Pottery Carved God Horus Funerary Amulets dating from the Ptolemaic Period 332–30 B.C.
Horus, the first known national god, specifically related to the king who in time came to be regarded as a manifestation of Horus in life and Osiris in death. The most commonly encountered family relationship describes Horus as the son of Isis and Osiris, and he plays a key role in the Osiris myth as Osiris's heir and the rival to Set, the murderer of Osiris.
Horus served many functions, most notably being a god of kingship and the sky. The Falcon heads are beautifully defined, with Sun Disk (Aten), a symbol of god Ra. The deified Aten is the focus of the monotheistic religion of Atenism established by Amenhotep IV, who later took the name Akhenaten (died ca. 1335 BCE) in worship and recognition of Aten, the creator, giver of life, and nurturing spirit of the world.
Pierced for attachment - Nets made of beadwork became a luxury fashionable feature of mummy wrappings in the Late Period. Amulets formed part of the beadwork pattern and served to protect the mummy through their magical properties. These are finer examples of such amulets.
