On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 116

The beads strung together here were found scattered in the area of the right wrist of one of the children buried in the tomb of Hatnefer (see 36.3.1). They were restrung based on the numbers of the various types and colors of beads. Because the beads were found near the child's wrist, they have been interpreted as part of a bracelet, though the use of wallet beads is more common on girdles (see 26.8.60).
