Broad Collar with Falcon-Head Terminals

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 118

This collar with falcon-head terminals decorated the chest of a woman's mummy. Since the beginning of the Old Kingdom (ca. 2649 B.C.), a broad collar customarily adorned Egyptian mummies. The vulture pectoral (26.8.105) that probably belongs to the same burial was also a traditional funerary emblem.
