The enigmatic Was scepter existed in ancient Egyptian art right from its beginnings, and is depicted in carvings dating back to the First Dynasty (about 3130 BCE). Generally shown as a staff with a forked end and topped with a stylized animal head, it is strongly associated with the god Set or Seth. Set, best known for his role as the murderer of his brother Osiris, was surprisingly popular in early Egypt, when he was seen as the powerful god of chaos, storms, and the desert. Set served as Ra's protector as he traveled through the underworld on his night barque, standing at the prow to spear the evil serpent Apep.

In later dynasties, with the rise of Osirian cults, Set's more villainous traits were emphasized and his popularity waned, but the Was scepter continued to appear as a symbol of Pharaonic might, and the ultimate representation of power over chaos.

My version of the Was scepter is based on several hieroglyphic examples, and includes the typical forked end and a stylized Set-animal head. Sleek, paradoxically modern, and lightweight, it comes with a sterling cable chain.

• Was scepter pendant cast in sterling silver from hand-fabricated model
• Pendant measures 1 1/8" (28 mm) high, excluding ring
• Available with sterling silver cable chain in your choice of 16", 18", or 20" length

Awesome experience. I received a message to tell me when the pendant would be shipped. It got here fast! It's beautiful and just as described. (Chain in pic is mine, not bought with) I highly recommend SilverspotStudio based on the craftsmanship and my experience.
