Would you wear these? Be honest.
These solid gold Ancient Egyptian sandals and toe stalls were made around 1479-1425 BC during the reign of Thutmose III.
Unearthed in a tomb belonging to one of Thutmoses’ wives, these particular sandals were part of the funerary possessions that were to accompany her to the afterlife. Such finery was only reserved for the super-rich and royalty.
As you can see, the big toe stall for the right foot is missing. I wonder what happened to it? Was it stolen or lost? It’s such a shame that this set is only one piece away from absolute perfection.
Artefacts like this are considered priceless. No value can be attached to them because of their extraordinary aesthetic and level of craftsmanship.
You’d look lavish in the afterlife with these on.
