<p>A silk scarf inspired by hieroglyphs - the alphabet of ancient Egypt. <br /> <br /> The hieroglyphic writing of ancient Egypt fascinated people for centuries until it was deciphered by Jean-Francois Champollion in the 19th century. This complex, picture-based script has formed the basis for this design.<br /> <br /> The scarf measures 150cm by 35cm and is ideal as a culturally-inspired gift.</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a silk scarf inspired by ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.

Each end of the scarf features a striking turquoise and lapis-coloured lotus pattern underneath two Egyptian cats and two wedjat eye symbols. 

Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were developed c.3000 BC, and were used for formal inscriptions. The alphabet is comprised of a series of symbols and characters, which includes birds, reeds and ankhs. The hieroglyphs were sometimes called ‘The Words of the Gods’ and were mainly used by priests. Although the ability to read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs was lost for centuries, they were finally deciphered by Jean-François Champollion in the 19th century, advancing the study of Egyptology immeasurably.

This unique scarf will make a perfect gift.
