The dynamic design of our Snake Bracelet is reproduced from a master mold taken directly from an original Egyptian bracelet from around 300–250 B.C. in the Museum's collection. Realistically rendered and detailed with scales on both its head and tail, the original snake bracelet was created during the Ptolemaic Kingdom, the area of Egypt ceded to general Ptolemy after Alexander the Great's early death.
