Golden Ram's-head Amulet (ca. 712–664 B.C., Third Intermediate Period, now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art) was probably made for a necklace worn by one of the Kushite kings. Representations show these pharaohs wearing a ram's-head amulet tied around the neck on a thick cord, the ends of which fall forward over the shoulders. Sometimes a smaller ram's head is attached to each end. Rams were associated with the god Amun, particularly in Nubia, where he was especially revered.
