Simple Bracelet Papyrus in carnelian

This jewel, which offers a modern interpretation of the papyrus motif, is inspired by amulets and objects with a protective function, in various shapes and materials that can date from different periods. These can be found both in funerary and living ornaments. For their wearers, they are a guarantee of protection, fertility, power or even rebirth.
The papyrus hieroglyph consists of three stems of this plant. Placed on the sign of water: it designates the Delta, i.e. Lower Egypt. The papyrus had a religious function: it was engraved on the temples, and carried in procession, and a symbolic function: it represents rebirth in the ancient Egyptian religion.
