 Despite the elevated form caused by a lack of perspective, ancient Egyptian art is often very realistic. Ancient Egyptian artists often show a thorough knowledge of anatomy and attention to detail, especially in their interpretations of animals. The Eye of Horus symbol was used in funerary rites and decoration, as described in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Therefore, the sacred eye can also function as a symbol of the offer.

Scarabs were worn as jewelry and amulets in ancient Egypt. The heart scarab, which were hieroglyphic inscriptions on the back, was often buried with the dead to ensure the rebirth of the deceased in the afterlife. A great symbol of ancient Egypt is the Sphinx. A magnificent monument carved into the living rock, is exceptionally in the Giza plateau. It was built near the Pyramids of Giza around 2500 BC by the pharaoh Khafre. We think Sphinx is a guardian of the horizon for the subsequent journey of the kings in the life after.



The gods were also important reasons in ancient Egypt. Ra is often regarded as the king of the gods and thus the patron of the pharaoh and one of the central gods of the Egyptian pantheon. The ancient Egyptian god Ra was associated with the sun, sky, light, power, kingship and the creation of the universe. Anubis was the Egyptian god of the underworld who guided the spirits of the dead in the afterlife.


 Horus was a sky god of light and goodness that hovered over and protected the land of the Pharaohs. It is usually depicted as a falcon or a falcon-headed man wearing the crown of all Egypt. Modern Egypt still celebrates the festivals dedicated to the god Osiris. Osiris is usually depicted as a mummy wearing the Atef crown with a crook and flail in his hands.
