Ra Amulet

Ra is shown as a hawk with a sun-disc on his head (Re-Horakhty) combining Re with Horus. This amulet would sometimes be worn in life as a sign of devotion to the god, and in death would offer the wearer the chance of eternal renewal with the sun each morning. It was usually placed in row of gods on chest, or on throat.
