Wonderful golden brass ram's head pendant bead. Cobra headress. Metropolitan Museum of Art Reproduction.
1 1/4" across and 1 6/16" long. Marked MMA

The original was probably made for a necklace worn by one of the Kushite kings. Representations show these pharaohs wearing a ram's-head amulet tied around the neck on a thick cord, the ends of which fall forward over the shoulders. Sometimes a smaller ram's head is attached to each end. Rams were associated with the god Amun, particularly in Nubia, where he was especially revered.
