This amulet depicts the vulture Nekhbet, patron goddess of Upper Egypt. It is in the form of a miniature wide Usekh collar and is made of beaten gold with a counterweight. It was found among many pieces of jewelry belonging to King Psusennes the First.
The amulet represents the god Ptah as a mummiform figure, wearing a straight beard and an unusual headdress. His hands emerge from the shroud to hold the djed pillar, the emblem of the god Osiris. This figure is set within a decorated gold shrine with a suspension loop on the roof, so that the piece could be worn like an amulet.
The squatting statuette of a man called Iwfaa was placed in the temple to permit its owner to symbolically participate in temple offerings. His body is completely covered by a cloak and he wears a necklace bearing the face of the goddess Hathor.
This original bracelet is formed of fifteen "Eyes of Horus," which are called, in the ancient Egyptian language, Udjat eyes. It provides its wearer with strong protection because the Udjat eye is the best-known amulet for protection.
The large polished pitcher has a lid in the form of a plant leaf, a mouth, a relatively long cylindrical neck, and a wide stem with a circular base. The handle is attached to the lid at the top and soldered to the body at the bottom.
An elaborately painted coffin consists of three pieces: the lid, the cover of the mummy and the base. The left side of the base is adorned with scenes beginning at the foot and depicting Anubis at the cemetery with the cow Hathor emerging from the western mountain. The goddess Nut is also depicted coming from the sacred tree and bringing offerings and pouring water for the deceased.
A gold bracelet that is one of the important pieces among the fine jewelry of King Psusennes the First. The collection, which includes a series of necklaces, collars, rings and bracelets, was found in his tomb at Tanis. It is thin and cylindrical in shape; the only decoration is a line of inscription that runs all round the inside and gives the name of the king and his epithets.
From the time of the New Kingdom, during the treatment of the body with natron salts in the mummification process, gold sheaths were placed on the fingers to prevent them from breaking off. These are three of the twenty found on the mummy of the king; ten were for the hands, like these, and were decorated with gold rings and ten were for the feet.
