This Egyptian Handmade Cartouche is crafted with care, bringing you the elegance and artistry of ancient Egypt. A cartouche is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic name plate, shaped like an oval with a horizontal bar at the base of the oval and a king's name written inside of the oval.
Traditionally, the cartouche was written on tombs and coffins to mark who was inside. The ancient Egyptians believed that each person had two souls, the Ba and the Ka, which needed to find their way back to the body after death in order to move on to the afterlife. Sometimes, the pharaohs would wear an amulet-style cartouche, to help ward them from evil spirits and attract good luck.
The cartouche is a hieroglyphic symbol, with the oval signifying a rope, and the horizontal line symbolizing the rope being tied together at the bottom to form an enclosed loop. It was believed by the Egyptians that the rope circle represented everything enclosed by the sun, symbolizing the king's power over the universe.
They are handmade to any name you desire spelled out in hieroglyphics, the kemetic language of ancient Egypt. The intricate details make a lasting impression. Perfect for collecting or gifting, this is a unique and meaningful way to connect to Egypt's storied past.
