Blue-painted Jar from Malqata with Hathor Emblem

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 119

This jar has been decorated with a series of personified ankh hieroglyphs. Each ankh has an eye of Horus, or "wedjat" eye, painted in the loop at the top, and two outstretched arms painted red. The best preserved ankh holds two baskets, one of which contains an emblem of the goddess Hathor (see also 11.215.472).
