The pectoral is made of a painted cartonnage in convex form, tapering from the straight top to the curved bottom. The painting comprises the following designs beginning from the top: A winged sun-disk between two disk-crowned hawk's heads; the usekh necklace; a winged scarabaeus supporting the sun's disk, which is flanked by two sacred eyes and two hawk-headed deities; Isis, winged, holding up two "feathers of truth" flanked by two sacred eyes; she kneels upon a tall pylon inscribed with three columns of hieroglyphics giving part of the deceased's name, Mes........, and flanked by the four Genii of Hades. The usekh necklace was a common ancient Egyptian jewellery. Isis was the wife of Osiris and the mother of Horus. She was a national deity in Egypt and in the Hellenistic age also acquired the status as a leading goddess of the Mediterranean world. She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife, and was the patron of nature and magic. A pylon is a massive, monumental gateway forming the entrance to an Egyptian temple. It consists of a pair of towerlike structures with slanting walls flanking the entrance portal. The term may also be used more loosely for any large isolated structure used to mark a boundary like with approaches to bridges or avenues.
