Object Description

A beautiful Egyptian restrung necklace consisting of Ancient Egyptian faience beads, dating back to the Armana period, the time of the reign of Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten). The necklace displays a nice motif comprising tubular green faience beads and flattened round pale red and white faience beads, alternated in the same combinations.

The Amarna period relates specifically to the later half of the 18th Dynasty and the reign of Tutankhamen’s father, Akhenaten, who altered the polytheistic Ancient Egyptian religion. The period saw the first development of monotheistic religion, in which the sun god Aten was worshipped above the other Egyptian gods.
