DT God Mehen
This tag features the Egyptian God Mehen. Also known as the snake god. This particular god has quite the back story as well as several depictions or transformations. To put it simply Mehen means protection. His main purpose was to protect the Egyptian God Ra. He would transform into a snakelike body and coil himself around Ra to protect him. He has several other meanings all pointing to the main meaning of protection.
This piece is definitely a conversation piece but it is also a piece that makes you feel empowered. I think that feeling is gained by believing the intention of this piece is protection and loyalty. I say loyalty due to Mehen's own story towards Egyptian God Ra. Quite a powerful piece.
All Dog Tags measures 2” x 1.25” and hang on a 12"-14" adjustable silver or gold chain (as seen in picture). If you would like your chain shorter or longer please note this while placing your order and consider it done.
The process used on these tags will never be revealed completely. We take a designed image and place it onto a special & rare paper. It is then heated to a certain degree melting the image onto the tag. Sometimes we just cover the entire tag with this process and other times like this we use special formulated paints to surround the image. The paint is put on in coats and filed, buffed and sometimes even carved to give it that weathered and/or textured look. We then use a special coating/sealant protecting the art from any damage that may occur while making the dog tag smooth to the touch. This also makes the tag easy to clean.
To protect & care for your jewelry AR Jewelry advises the following:
- Keep your jewelry stored in a dry room temperature, or colder, environment. A jewelry box, a random box, pouch or any container will do. The more humidity you have equals more care.
- When cleaning your jewelry we advise a simple jewelry cloth that you can find at any jewelry store, drugstore or anywhere that sells jewelry. (AR Jewelry will begin to sell them within the next few months).
- If you have a tough piece of jewelry that is heavily tarnished and the cloth won't work we advise you to use a simple cleaner. Nothing expensive or fancy needed. They are typically the same. Use as needed and follow the instructions exactly.
- Broken jewelry; If you have a piece of jewelry that is broken we will do our best to repair it. It does not matter where it came from. We charge only for the items needed to repair the item and a flat rate of $2 for all shipping within the US. Just email us with your repair inquiry and we will go from there. It is a very fast process.
