Note from the designer:
“Ammon was revered in Ancient Egypt as King of the gods. He was represented in human form with a ram’s head.
The shawl’s outstanding swirl is a homage to the graphic beauty of the curves and lines of ram horns.
Wear it with pride, dignity and determination, as Ammon wore his ram attributes.” -Julie Dubreux
