EDITORS COMMENTS This print showcases the exquisite Pectoral of the sacred eye flanked by the serpent goddess of the North and the vulture goddess of the South. Crafted with meticulous detail from gold cloisonné adorned with glass-paste, this ancient artifact was discovered in the tomb of pharaoh Tutankhamun in Egypt's Valley of the Kings. Against a pristine white background, this pendant takes center stage, radiating its historical significance. Symbolizing protection and divine power, it features intricate depictions of Horus' sacred eye - known as Wedjet Eye - on either side. The serpent goddess represents rebirth and fertility while her counterpart, the vulture goddess, symbolizes motherhood and royalty. Photographer Robert Harding skillfully captures every facet and nuance of this treasure through his expert studio shot. The golden hues gleam under careful lighting, emphasizing its opulence and craftsmanship. This horizontal composition allows viewers to appreciate each element individually while also marveling at their harmonious arrangement. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece from an ancient civilization that thrived thousands of years ago, we are transported back in time to witness Egypt's rich history unfold before our eyes. It serves as a testament to human ingenuity and artistic prowess that continues to captivate us today.
