Collar Made of Colored Faience

Post  Admin on Wed Feb 24, 2010 7:33 am


This openwork collar was discovered at Tell el-Amarna near the royal palace. It was probably worn by one of the royal princesses or one of the two queens.

It consists of seven rows made of faience separated by horizontal strings of small beads. These rows have different shapes of lotus petals, the first four rows have a round shape while the other three rows have a cylindrical shape. The rows are painted in bright colors; yellow, blue, red, green, white and violet.

The collar ends by two lotus flower painted in yellow, white, blue and green.
