“As a symbol of rebirth and regeneration, the lotus was a popular design, and depictions of this blossom are prevalent in Egyptian art. Lotus flowers are held by both men and women in tomb scenes, and in temple scenes bouquets of lotus flowers are offered to the gods. Lotus amulets are often incorporated into broad collars.” (Jennifer Wegner, label text, “Sacred Adornment: Jewelry as Belief in Ancient Egypt”)
