267, D. LUNAR AND SOLAR BREAST ORNAMENT.
Max. H. 14.9, Max. W. 14.5, cms.
An open-work breast ornament of complex design:
A combined Kheper-and-solar-hawk supporting the lunar barque containing
the "eye of Horus" (i.e. the moon), surmounted by the crescent (gold)
and lunar orb (silver) upon which are applied (in gold) a figure of
the King between the two gods Herakhty (of the eastern horizon) and
Aah (Thoth, the moon god).
In the lunar barque are two solar uraei; pendant on either side of the
Kheper-and-solar-hawk a solar uraeus; in the talons of the Kheper-
and-solar-hawk Shen symbols and lotus lilies; and depending from
the lower bar of contiguous circles are lotus flowers, poppies, complex
buds and papyrus corollae, between concentric circles (attached to
the stems of the lotus flowers.)
On the ends of the hawk's wings are six eyelets (on either side) for
attachment, apparently by which the ornament pended.
