The Fayum Mummy portraits were discovered in archeological sites around Ancient Egypt. Showing the Fayum people, the paintings depict inhabitants who came to settle in this fertile area near the Nile from all over the land. The portraits were held in place by the cloth that wrapped the mummies, and give a touching insight into the lives and personalities of the citizens. The Fayum portrait after which this necklace is named is for a noblewoman named Isadora from Ankyronpolis. She is shown with a strong confident gaze, draped in gold, and precious stones.
