Floral collars & flowers


Apart from the Wesech collar used in ancient Egypt, also a more open worked collar is worn and represented on reliefs. For instance on the left image on this page (Tomb of Userhêt, ca. 1300 BC) and on the image below this text these kinds of collars are visible. These collars seem to have been worn on various occasions often related to feasts. These floral collars (as for instance presented in the image below right), are most likely translated from collars made of flowers and leaves, which were also used throughout history. Some of these collars are presented here in images as well, for instance in the background and on the image on the center left.
