Egyptian Teti Necklace

Egyptian Teti Necklace

  • $ 9000

This Lapis lazuli necklace is inspired by the pattern on a coffin belonging to an ancient Egyptian middle-class artisan named Teti. He was a "Servant of the Great Place," a title used by artisans who painted tombs in the Valley of the Kings and lived in Deir el-Medina. Teti used five different colors to decorate his high quality wooden coffin, which cost him nearly a year's salary.
