Ensemble of Rosettes

New Kingdom

Not on view

These rosettes from the funerary equipment of three foreign wives of Thutmose III have been diplayed in various ways, since they came to the Metropolitan Museum in 1926. Most familiar to previous viewers is their reconstruction as part of a wig cover with 26.8.117bb as the head piece. Such a cover was first suggested by Herbert E. Winlock in 1937 and later modified. According to present understanding, the joining of the rosettes to the gold disk 26.8.117bb, and the use of strands of rosettes as a wig cover are uncertain.
