Following the same design of the ancient Egyptians this beautiful Lotus Leaf filigree pure silver bracelet was created by jewelry artisans of Cairo, Egypt in the 1920's-1930's. Of articulated design, each link composed of highly decorative and fine lotus leaves is “woven” in 925 silver (hallmarked).
Sesen is the beautiful lotus flower often depicted in Egyptian artworks. It symbolizes creation, life, and rebirth, and dates back to the Early Dynastic Period. The flower closes up at night, sinking below the water as it rests, and then reappears at daybreak. Because of this, it has been associated with the sun, rebirth and life itself. It was often painted on canopic jars along with the Four Sons of Horus, as well as temples, amulets and shrines. It is also known as Upper Egypt’s symbol, whereas the papyrus plant is associated with Lower Egypt.
The Lotus Leaf Symbol was a potent ancient Egyptian symbol and icon in the mythology and legends of Egypt and often depicted in ancient Egyptian art. According to ancient Egyptian mythology the Lotus symbolized the son of creation, rebirth and regeneration.
Size: 8-8.25 inches (21 cm).
We are including the authentic, provenance jewelry pouch from the Egyptian luxury dealer in Cairo, where the bracelet was acquired by one of our ancestors.
