The funerary scroll Papyrus of Ani, also called the Book of the Dead, inspired the hieroglyph-and-goddess design of this striking Isis Scarf. Made of 100% silk, this Isis Scarf is printed in muted metallics. Imported. 66"l. x 16"w.
This Isis Scarf is inspired by a series of symbols of Egyptian gods and goddesses in the collections of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. Ancient Egyptians’ spirituality dominated the life and landscape of the Nile River Valley. Elegant gods and goddesses were immortalized in carvings, paintings papyrus and jewels. Their power inspired the creation of immense obelisks, palaces and the Great Pyramids.
