Ägyptisches Museum, Berlin
The lotus is one of the most significant symbolic flowers in the Egyptian-Nubian culture. It symbolizes birth and life after death. Our jewellery is inspired by a lotus pendant with a center lotus flower made by gold wire and glass flux. It is the only piece of its kind to be found together with numerous other pieces of jewellery in the tomb of the Meroitic queen Amanishakheto, who is believed to have ruled from 10 BC to 1 AD.
