About the work

curationist logoCurationist Object Description
Sithathoryunet is believed to be the daughter of Senwosret, a Dynasty 12 ruler. When his burial site was excavated, so was Sithathoryunet's tomb. Her tomb was filled with jewelry and beauty products, including these wig rings.

Although her many wigs had deteriorated, over 1,000 small, gold rings remained. Gold ornaments, typically worn on women's wigs, were indicative of the wearer's high social status.
