“Seven gold amulets of the god Horus in falcon form decorate this necklace. The god wears a crown known as the double crown, signifying his rule over the two lands of Egypt, Upper Egypt in the south and Lower Egypt in the north. Horus can also appear in Egyptian art as a man with a falcon head.” (Jennifer Wegner, label text, “Sacred Adornment: Jewelry as Belief in Ancient Egypt”)
