This custom museum display showcases an absolute masterpiece, an Authentic Complete Set of 4 Faience 'Sons of Horus' Amulets dating from The Ptolemaic Period 332–30 B.C.

The Sons Of Horus were the Gods Of The Cardinal Compass Points. Each god was responsible for protecting a particular organ during the mummification process, and was himself protected by a companion goddess.

They were;

-Happy, The Baboon-Headed God representing the North, who protected the lungs and was protected by The Goddess Nephthys. Happy Is often used interchangeably with the God Hapi, though they are actually different Gods.

-Duamutef, The Jackal-Headed God representing the East, who protected the stomach and was protected by The Goddess Neith-Imsety, The Human-Headed God representing the South, who protected the liver and was protected by The Goddess Isis.

-Qebehsenuef, The Falcon-Headed God representing the West, who protected the intestines and was protected by The Goddess Serqet.

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 Sons of Horus statues are finer examples of such amulets.
