Large Egyptian red Jasper Isis Knot amulet, late period - ex HaeberlinLarge Egyptian red Jasper Isis Knot amulet, late period - ex HaeberlinLarge Egyptian red Jasper Isis Knot amulet, late period - ex Haeberlin

A larger Egyptian Jasper amulet from the Haeberlin inventory, dating ca. 700-300 BC.

The amulet in nice condition and great colour, mounted to a plexi base, marked ES732 in the ES collection, description card included in the pictures.

Size: 31 mm. high (40 mm. incl. the costum base)

Provenance: Private German Collection (ES), bought between 1962 from the Collection of Prof. Haeberlin, from an older collection, and brought back from Egypt in the 19th. century.

The Tyt-knot, also known as the girdle of Isis, has been described as "an open loop of material from whose bound lower end hangs a long sash flanked by two folded loops". Its name may derive from Egyptian tayt, meaning "shroud" or "curtain". Even in written sources the meaning and symbolism of this object seems to be similar to those of the ankh, and the sign is often translated as "life" or "welfare." Knots were widely used as amulets because the Egyptians believed they bound and released magic.
