Hedgehog
Middle Kingdom, XII-XIII Dynasty, 1938-1700 B.C.E. Egypt
Now located in the Brooklyn Museum
When food is scarce, hedgehogs retreat into underground dens for long periods, only to re-emerge in times of abundance. The Egyptians associated this behavior with rebirth and thus wore amulets in the form of hedgehogs or left figures such as this one in tombs.
