Pectoral with Seated Horus and Osiris

The pectoral, a large piece of jewelry worn on the chest, is shaped like the front of a naos, or shrine.
The front of the pectoral has a scene depicting the figure of Osiris looking to the right, facing a figure of Horus. Both are squatting and holding an Ankh, the sign of life, on one knee. The top of the pectoral is shaped like an Egyptian cavetto cornice, or frieze.
On the back of the pectoral, a border topped with a row of lines surrounds a Tyet, the protective knot sign, between two Djed signs of stability. The rear upper edge is pierced by three holes on each side halfway between the middle and side.
