Fragment of Egyptian linen cardboard, Ptolemaic Period, 305-30 B.C.

DESCRIPTION
The ancient Egyptians had a wide belief in the funerary world and the afterlife, which is why mummification systems and broad theological beliefs occur. This set would be placed on top of the mummy, belonging to a larger carton. Without any doubt a very chosen and luxurious set that must have belonged to someone with a high purchasing power. The upper part resembles a ritual necklace, with the goddess Isis and two Horus on the sides. The lower part represents the goddess with open, winged arms with the sun on her head.
