Egyptian jewellery Ramses seal pendant 925 silver
Cartouche of RamsesThis massive pendant out of 925 silver shows the cartouche of Ramses the Great, accompanied by two protecting Uraeus snakes, which are wearing the crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt. The sun, symbol of the god Re, is enamelled with red glas by hand. The inscription is: "User-Maat-Re Setep-En-Re", the throne's name of Ramses II. The translation: "Powerful is the justice of Re, chosen by Re!" As well this amulet is delivered with a simple leather strap, but looks great on a silver chain or long leather strap, too! In the ancient Egypt for more than 3000 years the sun god was admired since the second dynasty. In the course of centuries all the great gods merged with him. Names like Atum-Re, Chnum-Re and Amun-Re show that in many texts and documents. Re, as well called Ra, was the first god of Empire and the most important one of the ancient Egypt. The greatest admiration was dedicated to him in the Ancient Empire. The ancient Egypts built great pyramids to honour him. And as well centuries later the pharaohs constructed obelisks, that were reaching as far as the sky and on whose tops the sunlight gleamed and was reflected. Always one of the five names of the Egyptian king was "Re's son". In the New Empire it seemed, that the glamour of the sun's god was disappearing gradually. Amun of Theben, an earlier unimportant local god, raised to become one of the most powerful gods and started driving out Re. But still numerous Egyptians admired the sun's god and so the two gods became one. After that Amun-Re ruled over Egypt.
