amulet : flog

In antiquity, as today, the croaking of frogs was often the first sound heard each morning in Egypt. The Egyptians thus associated the amphibian with the sun's daily rebirth and believed that images of frogs had amuletic powers. This sculpture was probably placed next to a woman to protect her during childbirth. The combination of deep blue and turquoise typifies objects from the time of Amunhotep III.
