The djed-pillar was closely linked with Osiris, and its shape was interpreted as a representation of his backbone, suggesting stability and endurance.  This example, of fine bright blue faience, has a slender tapering form with a tall broad shaft and ribbed capital that is surmounted by four short horizontal bars.  It is pierced at the back for attachment to the mummy wrappings thus conferring these qualities on the deceased.  Strung as a necklace on an 18- inch silver chain.

Dimensions:  Amulet height: 7/8 inches (2.3 cm)

Condition: The amulet is intact and in excellent condition overall.

Provenance: Rona family collection of Egyptian antiquities, New Jersey, assembled in the 1960s and then by descent.
