An incredible Ancient Egyptian faience amulet, modelled in the shape of a frog and featuring olive green and bright red glaze. The frog is portrayed sitting on an oval plinth, with its head slightly turned up. Anatomical features are naturalistically rendered, with the eyes glazed in red. The amulet has been pierced longitudinally for suspension. The flat base of the amulet has been carved with a Nefer hieroglyph, representing the Egyptian word for beautiful or good.
