Visual Description : Carved Egyptian amulet depicting the head of a human figure wearing a royal headdress, false beard, and detailed collar. Details have been carved in low relief. The amulet is a green-grey colour and has a hole puncturing the sides of the figure's headdress (a piece has been added to the top of the headdress for the purpose of suspending the piece). 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.
