Egyptian white lotus ( Nymphaea lotus) is believed to be the original sacred lotus of ancient Egypt. It, and the Egyptian blue lotus ( Nymphaea caerulea) , were often depicted in ancient Egyptian art. A blue lotus was found spread over Tutankhamun's body when the pharaoh's tomb was opened in 1922.

Lotus amulets were made from different materials, such as gold, silver, bronze and different types of stone. They could be necklaces, bracelets or other jewelry and were worn to protect and bring good luck.

Symbol meaning

Ancient Egypt is known for its symbolic and ritual culture, where various amulets and symbols were a significant part of people's lives. The lotus was one of the important symbols associated with the concepts of life, death and rebirth. The lotus was also a symbol of Upper Egypt. This flower, along with the papyrus flower, was depicted throughout Egypt in tombs and temples to symbolize the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt.

A lotus is a plant that grows out of mud and blooms beautifully on the surface of water. This symbolizes rebirth and spiritual growth in Egyptian culture. The lotus flower opens in daylight and closes at night, which was associated with the movement and continuity of the sun. This made the lotus a powerful symbol for understanding the cycle of life and death.

Amulets were an important part of the Egyptian belief system and had many different meanings and uses. The lotus as a symbol reflected the Egyptian culture's deep understanding of the mystery of life and death, as well as the belief in continuity and rebirth. Lotuses were also associated with funerals, symbolizing the transition to another life.

The lotus amulet can be a powerful symbol when used in ritual or spiritual practice. Here are a few ways the lotus amulet can be used in rituals:
