The gold cow might have been used as an amulet or a piece of inlay. Attached to its neck is a sistrum, which is a musical rattle and symbol of the goddess Hathor. In Ancient Egypt, the cow is Hathor's sacred animal.
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.
This marvelous bed, which belonged to Queen Hetepheres, rests on four gilded wooden supports in the form of lion's legs. Her son, King Khufu, transferred her funerary bed from Dahshur to Giza to provide more security.
This turquoise-blue glass headrest probably was padded with linen to provide support and comfort during sleep. It is decorated with the names and titles of King Tutankhamun. It also displays the signs of the Ankh, symbol of life, and the "Was" scepter, symbol of prosperity and dominion.
This masterpiece of a bracelet was found in the beautiful cartouche-shaped chest of King Tutankhamun with other fine pieces of jewelry. The main element in the design is the amethyst scarab with details, as is common with scarabs of this hard stone. The strap of the bracelet consists of four strings of beads of gold, carnelian, lapis lazuli and jasper in the form of tiny eyes of Horus and scarabs.
