“This elaborately re-strung necklace features nine amulets representing several different Egyptian deities, including Isis and her son Horus (shown seated on a throne); Taweret, a goddess who protected pregnant women; Anubis, a jackal-headed funerary deity; and two male deities. Two wadj amulets, meaning ‘healthy,’ adorn the hanging ends of the necklace.” (Jennifer Wegner, label text, “Sacred Adornment: Jewelry as Belief in Ancient Egypt”)
