Lotus Bead Pendant Necklace from The Met Museum


Our colorful pendant is based on a detail on a faience ram with a lotus-shaped manger in The Met collection. This charming ram was made in the 2nd century during the period of Roman rule in Egypt. The faience composition may allude to Harpokrates, who was an immensely popular god of fecundity and rebirth during the Roman era. The ancient Egyptians loved the color blue, which represented the power of the heavens and water-and you will, too, when you wear this lotus-shaped drop pendant in 18K gold plate with a blue lapis bead.
