Ancient Egyptian Coffins

The ancient Egyptians had perfected the art of mummification, the best technique took 70 days and involved removing the internal organs, removing the brain through the nose, and dry the body in a salt mixture called natron. The body was then wrapped in linen with protective amulets inserted between layers and placed in a decorated anthropoid coffin.The purpose of the coffin from the earliest times was the protection of the body, protecting it from deterioration or mutilation.

A sarcophagus was also usually provided to hold the coffin in the grave. Sarcophagus formed the external layer of protection of a royal mummy, with several layers of coffins nested inside, and was often carved in alabaster. The Greek etymology of "sarcophagus" is "meat eater". Coffins themselves were placed in tombs secure, protecting the mummified bodies of intruders and the elements. 


 The text and photos on the Egyptian coffins were intended to provide the owner with the help and magical knowledge to survive and prosper in the hereafter. Ancient Egyptian coffins often show the deceased to wear fine jewelry. The method comprises two stages of mummification. The first is the preparation of the body. So is the packaging and burial of the body.

Rich Egyptians were buried with larger quantities of luxury items, but all burials, regardless of social status, including the deceased's assets. Early New Kingdom, books of the dead were included in the grave, with statues shabti was believed to perform manual labor for them in the afterlife rituals in which the deceased was magically re-animated accompanied burials. After the funeral, family life were supposed to bring food to mark the grave and recite prayers on behalf of the deceased.

Throughout ancient Egyptian history, despite many changes in emphasis and fashion, there were two major themes of the decoration of coffins. These reflect two of the most important strands of belief concerning the afterlife. The first theme relates to the sun god. According to a major creation myth, the sun god was the creator of the universe. The other major theme of the decoration coffin incorporated elements from the myth of Osiris.

The intention was to commemorate the life of the tomb owner, of the supplies needed for the afterlife, represent the performance of funeral rites, and in general present an environment that would support the revival of the tomb
of the owner .
