This custom museum display showcases an absolute masterpiece, an Authentic Carved Blue Polychrome(painted) pottery Nephthys Head Funerary Amulet dating from the Ptolemaic Period 332–30 B.C. This amulet was finely carved depicting a female in human form with a tripartite wig and wearing the headdress in the shape of a house and basket, representing her name, means quite specifically, "Lady of the (Temple) Enclosure" which associates her with the role of priestess. The face is beautifully defined with incised mouth, large almond shaped eyes and faint ears.

Nephthys was one of the original five gods of ancient Egypt born of the union of Geb (earth) and Nut (sky) after the creation of the world. She was the fourth born after Osiris, Isis, and Set and was the older sister of Horus (usually referred to as Horus the Elder). As one of the earliest goddesses of Egypt, she was a member of the Ennead of Heliopolis, a tribunal of nine deities of immense power. Temples to Nephthys were quite common and she was considered an extremely important goddess.

She was represented by the pylons outside of temples in her role as a protective goddess of souls. She was associated with death from an early period and was regularly invoked during funeral services. Professional mourners at Egyptian funerals were known as "Hawks of Nephthys" and she is one of the four goddesses (along with Isis, Selket, and Neith) whose images were found in the tomb of Tutankhamun as guardians of his canopic vessels.
