Pair of silver bracelets, belong to Queen Hetepheres I, inlaid with semi-precious stones in the form of a butterfly (silver, turquoise, lapis lazuli, and carnelian). Old Kingdom, 4th Dynasty, ca. 2575-2550 BC. From the Tomb of Hetepheres I, G 7000X near the Great Pyramid of Giza. Now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo.
Zuni artists, listen up! How about that. What a great design, with imagery that could definitely work today in Native jewelry.
is it kingman? or maybe sleeping beauty?
Thank you @Ziacat . We should have seen that coming.
In all seriousness, they really are gorgeous.
These are incredible and I am reminded how human cultures throughout time and space have created art - the same ways with the same materials applied with tenderness and love.
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
I get a kick out of looking through shops that sell high-end authentic old and new. There is much to be learned about the past from seeing the new bags, baskets, jewelry, etc. It is cool and beautiful.
Wow!!! Need more characters for post
All joking aside, those are extremely cool bracelets. I keep coming back to look at them.
Ok, here was the rest of them in the original photo. I was not sure if they were just different images of the same two or 7 different ones. So here they are for your enjoyment.
I believe these are the same style shown as being made in the modern days.
Thanks for the clarification @raysha !
Do you have a link to objects like these? Would like to see.
I think this should get you there
@raysha I misunderstood your phrasing when you wrote “in the modern days” in response to @StevesTrail showing more cuffs. I read that as saying you thought it was still a style made today that you’ve seen. Ok then, we’re all talking about the antiquities.
I’m not sure. It seems to me the original poster was showing modern styles of the two ancient bracelets found in Queen Hetepheres I’s tomb?
