An amulet is a talisman or charm worn believed to have magical powers. Egyptian amulets were produced for about 4500 years to protect individuals both in this life and in the afterlife. From the Old Kingdom on, a vast array of amulets of gods, goddess, and sacred animals were produced in many media, including faience. Amulets, such as the Uzat eye of Horus were for protection. Amulets would help the wearer assimilate qualities; a hare amulet, for example, would confer swiftness of movement and keenness of senses. Amulets, such as the Crown of Lower Egypt amulet, imbued authority and power. Amulets of offerings, possessions, and property served as the substitutes in the afterlife.
