Object Description

A deep blue lapis lazuli amulet of a falcon, symbolic of the god Horus. The amulet has a carefully crafted profile, with the beak and facial details clearly visible. The bird has its wings tucked into his sides, and his tail flows down to gently rest against the rectangular base of the amulet. The talons and legs are also precisely depicted. Incredible attention to detail is evident in the incising of lines to resemble feathers along the tail feathers.
