Photographer's Note

A closeup, detailed shot of part of a gold necklace found on the coffin of Queen Ahhotep I, inside her tomb at Dra Abu el Naga near Luxor. It is now in the Cairo Museum. This type of neck collar was called Usekh. I liked all the little animals, such as lions, goats, cats etc and had no idea ancient Egyptian jewellry was so sophisticated back in the 17th and 18th dynasties that this dates to. (1580 to 1550 BC and 1550/1549 to 1292 BC).

I have cloned out my own reflection in the lower part of the glass enclosure protecting these antiquities.
