Jewelry chest of Sithathoryunet
Because the original wood of Sithathoryunet’s boxes had decayed, they were reconstructed in the Metropolitan Museum based on the detailed notes of the excavator Guy Brunton. The gold djed pillars on the sides are symbols of the funerary god Osiris as well as the word for stability. The emblems on the lid belong to Hathor, the goddess of beauty, making them appropriate symbols for a cosmetic box.
