Ancient Egyptian Carved Hematite Amulet A N C I E N T E G Y P T Late Dynastic Period. Ca. 663-332 BC. We are pleased to offer this fine quality hematite Headrest Amulet. A carved miniature hematite headrest with rectangular base and T-shaped stem. Before the Third Intermediate Period, headrest amulets are found only in royal burials; Tutankhamen owned one of iron, as did Prince Hornakht and King Sheshonq II at Tanis. However, from the Saite Period onward, they were more prevalent, made almost exclusively of hematite (such as this example). It was essentially intended magically to raise up the head of the deceased in resurrection, just as the sun god was raised above the eastern horizon each morning. However, Chapter 166 further reveals that it would also prevent the deceased head being cut off, a much-feared fate against which Chapter 43 was specifically directed. Hematite carved Mineral Headrest AmuletIntact--no repairs. Length 23mm (Near 1 inch). Literature Cf. Andrews, C. Amulets of Ancient Egypt, London, 1994, fig. 95a.
