Holy hippo! Egyptian chain with a hippo
"Hedjet" was the name given to the hippopotamus cow in ancient Egypt and at the same time its fertile and nourishing power was revered. "Hedjet" means "white".
Colour, form and function
The hippopotamus pendant on the chain is turquoise. The hippopotamus was depicted in blue worlds of colour in ancient Egypt - in sculptures, for example. But the Egyptian chain not only reflects fertility, but also regeneration. The hippopotamus in the Middle Kingdom as well as in the New Kingdom was a symbol for a regenerative power. It was often decorated with other symbols such as lotus blossoms, butterflies and frogs. The Egyptian chain is also decorated with a lotus flower. As was usual in Egypt, it is emblazoned in the middle of the hippo.

Back to the hippo again
The goddess Hathor worshipped the papyrus thicket, of which the hippopotamus is a part. Hathor is the goddess of regeneration. This might not be unimportant for the awarding of such powers to the hippopotamus. The Egyptian chain reflects so much! Not only the history of the New and the Middle Kingdom, but also that of the Goddess of Regeneration, the Goddess Hathor. But also the sun has something to do with the symbolism of the hippopotamus. When it rises and sets, the hippo roars - a worship of the sun god. Regeneration and rebirth also reappear here. In addition, the hippo is known as a rather peaceful creature. This fits to the fertility as well as to the regenerative forces. In any case, the Egyptian chain obviously does not only look beautiful, but it is also provided with a lot of history. The Egyptian chain is simply pure history, and you can see that on it. If you are looking for an Egyptian necklace, you are certainly well advised to use it - because it is unique.
