Egyptian Yellow Faience Fly Amulet

A yellow amulets in the form of a fly, with suspension loop. Undecorated reverse.

The symbolism of the fly in amulet form is uncertain. In the New kingdom, the golden fly was an honour awarded to people who were brave in a battle. Perhaps, the underlying idea lay in the Egyptian fly's typical behaviour: the gold variety rewarded persistence in attacking the enemy.

Fine condition.
