Amulets of the head of the fertility goddess Hathor were popular items in both Egyptian and Nubian burials. This elaborate openwork amulet of blue glazed faience takes the form of a plaque. On the front, the goddess appears frontally, with her characteristic cow's ears and horns. Her headdress incorporates a shrine, similar to those seen on Hathor-headed sistra. She is flanked by a pair of uraeii, one in the red crown of Lower Egypt and the other in the white crown of Upper Egypt. NUBIAN
