Description

The knot motif central to this timeless necklace evokes a gold clasp (ca. 1850–1775 B.C.) that once belonged to an ancient Egyptian noblewoman named Senebtisi. The early 20th-century discovery of her remarkable tomb was unparalleled at the time; her exquisite ritual jewelry suggested an association with royalty, and she was buried with ceremonial staves, previously thought exclusive to high-born men. Her knot-shaped clasp, now in The Met collection, exemplifies this popular Middle Kingdom symbol imbued with protective properties.
