Exclusive to the British Museum, a silk scarf inspired by a watercolour study of an ancient Egyptian stela.

The scarf is part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt.

The long scarf features a series of hieroglyph symbols against a pale background, surrounded by a vibrant border. The scarf is finished at each end with the image of a watercolour by Alessandro Ricci (1792-1834) which is based on a round-topped sycamore wood stela that dates to around 1069-747 BC, and depicts Nestjerenmaat, chief chantress of Montru on the right, raising her hands at the god Ra-Horakhty, who is holding a was-sceptre in one hand and an ankh-sign in the other. Between the two figures are six columns of hieroglyph texts which inscribe a funerary invocation.  

An enchanting fashion gift for a lover of ancient Egypt.
