Egyptian Falcon

Now in our shop: unique and exact copy of an ancient mummy amulet.

The falcon amulet, associated with the god Horus, was wrapped with the mummy Neswaiu over 2 300 years ago to protect him. This mummy is intact unlike most of which were robbed and destroyed already in ancient times.

Visitors to the Medelhavsmuseet in Stockholm are able to explore a virtual copy of the mummy. Via a unique 3D representation of the mummy the visitors can explore both its interior and exterior. All layers of the mummy becomes visible - from the small carvings on the sarcophagus to its anatomy - and the artifacts wrapped together with the body. One astonishing example is this golden amulet in the shape of a falcon.
