About this Product
Pendant of the Egyptian God Ra.
From Wikipedia: Ra was the ancient Egyptian solar deity. By the Fifth Dynasty he had become a major god in ancient Egyptian religion, identified primarily with the midday sun. The meaning of the name is uncertain, but it is thought that if not a word for 'sun' it may be a variant of or linked to words meaning 'creative power' and 'creator'.
Note the design at the bottom represents the Sun and the circles above it are meant to be Mercury, Venus and Earth.
Photo's show the pendant printed in Raw Silver.
Note that this pendant is hollow to keep the cost down. The walls are about 2mm thick but in places like the beak it is actually solid.
Because of the small recessed design on the back of the pendant, Shapeways have told me they will not print this in the polished brass, bronze, or silver. I did have this successfully printed in Polished Gold Steel (as seen in photo's), however, I have not made it available due to loss of definition. Matte Gold Steel and others are still available.
You can, of course, still order in the "raw" metals. The photo's shows Raw Silver.
