Visual Description : Carved Egyptian amulet depicting a seated human figure (gender is not apparent) wearing a royal headdress constructed of solar plumes and solar disc. The figure may be a god or goddess. Details have been carved in relief. The amulet is a green/grey colour, and has a hole puncturing the side of the figure's headdress. The hole extends through both sides of the piece, which indicates that it may have been worn as a bead on a piece of jewelry. The figure has been broken, so it is in 2 seperate pieces.
