Item details

This pendant recreates one of the many gilded leopard heads that belong to the Egyptian priest Sem (sm) vestments, found in the tomb of Tutankhamun and adorned with the cartridge of the king, 1350 BC, Egyptian Museum, Cairo, Egypt.

Sem priests (sm) were funerary priests in charge of the important funeral rite of "Opening of the Mouth and the Eyes." Over their clothes wore a leopard skin (a representation of these can be seen in the wall decoration inside the tomb of King Tut) where these heads (made of wood, for example) were hung. Also, sometimes they wear the side lock, symbolically representing Horus opposite the dead, Osiris. The ritual allowed the deceased to recover magically the senses, and was used on the coffin and mummy and / or statues and representations.

Lead-free pewter.

You can use it like this or create something beautiful with it.

Measures: 2.5 cm/ 0.98 inches large
