Decoración de un mueble con forma de cobra (EA16518). Época romana. Detalle que muestra a una cobra que se puede identificar con la diosa Wadjet, señora del Bajo Egipto (porta la Corona Roja) y protectora de la realeza. Esta deidad es ampliamente representada en las manifestaciones plásticas egipcias, en posición de ataque (se puede observar debido a su capucha extendida y su posición erguida), cumpliendo ese papel protector que más la caracteriza; relacionado con eso, se suele ver una cobra en la frente del monarca, el ureo, en una posición muy similar a la foto, dispuesta a lanzar fuego a los enemigos del faraón. La cobra es un animal muy peligroso, mortal por su veneno, pero los egipcios vinculaban eso con el papel protector, apotropaico, de la diosa. Suele verse junto a la diosa del Alto Egipto, Nekhbet, representada como un buitre; ambas son llamadas "Las Dos Señoras" (uno de los cinco títulos, además, que posee el monarca como forma de resaltar su papel como gobernante de las dos regiones de Egipto). Esta "pareja" de diosas es una muestra más de cómo los antiguos egipcios veían el mundo: todo estaba formado por parejas complementarias (Maat e Isfet, desierto y tierra fértil, Horus y Set etc.) que son necesarias para su existencia mutua. El mundo entendido como una serie de fuerzas en tensión, en perfecto equilibrio. #ancientegypt #antiguoegipto #egyptology #egypt #egiptologia #archaeology #arqueologia #history #historia #egipto #myth #mitologia #egyptiangods
Rano je jutro, još uvek je zima i napolju je prilično hladno. Deluje nezamislivo da na samo tri sata leta od Beograda, preko cele godine živi pravo, pravcato leto. Na samo dvadesetak kilometara udaljenosti od tog istog aerodroma, na Crvenom moru, poznatom kao „more sedam boja“, nalazi se zaliv Sahl Hasheesh. Naizgled beskrajnih 12,5 km zlatne peščane obale ljubi prozirno plavo more u ovom zalivu, čije romantično ime prevedeno na naš jezik jeste „zelena dolina“. U bajkovitu dolinu izuzetne lepote, sa građevinama i ukrasima iz persijskih i arapskih priča, ušuškao se ekskluzivan hotel sa pet zvezdica, Premier Le Reve. 21.11. na 7 noci, cena 1146 eur www.sanjatravel.rs #egypt #egyptology #amazingegypt #toplamora #sanjatravel #travel #goodvibes
GALLERY photos of exhibition blue. Here it is framed and then a shot with me. If you are wondering, yes, the piece hanging below mine (from another artist) is awesome close up. The two pieces look great together imo. Many comments from people about the choice of paint used - "how did you get it to look so shiny?" ;) The exhibition's last day is this Friday from 7-9, and all pieces are for sale *except* the ones that have already been purchased of course!! One gorgeous piece was grabbed within an hour of the gallery opening!

Built during a time when Egypt was one of the richest and most powerful civilizations in the world, the pyramids—especially the Great Pyramids of Giza—are some of the most magnificent man-made structures in history. . . . Did you know? The pyramid's smooth, angled sides symbolized the rays of the sun and were designed to help the king's soul ascend to heaven and join the gods, particularly the sun god Ra. I’m still amazed that I was inside the center of the pyramid... in the tomb of the Pharaoh Khafre😱 Mind blown🤯 so cool! . . . #travelbuffpuff at Pyramid of Khafre . . . #khafre #pyramids #pyramidsofgiza #gizapyramids #gizaplateau #ancientwondersoftheworld #ancientwonders #sevenwonders #sevenwondersoftheworld #visitegypt #egyptology #amazingegypt #egyptshots #igegypt #sheisnotlost #wewhotravel #tlpicks #aroundtheworld #cntraveler #femmetravel #iamatraveler #travelawesome #wearetravelgirls #girlsdreamtravel #traveltoafrica #ancientegypt #ancientegyptian #ancienthistory #dametraveler
A sistrum 𓋴𓈙𓈙𓏏𓏣 “sšš.t” or Latin sistra, from the Greek: σεῖστρον seistron of the same meaning; literally "that which is being shaken", from σείειν seiein, "to shake") is a musical instrument of the percussion family, chiefly associated with ancient Egypt 𓆎𓅓𓏏𓊖 “kmt” and Iraq. The sistrum was a sacred instrument in ancient Egypt. Perhaps originating in the worship of Bastet 𓃠, it was used in dances 𓀥 and religious ceremonies, particularly in the worship of the goddess Hathor 𓁥, with the U-shape of the sistrum's handle and frame seen as resembling the face and horns of the cow goddess Apis 𓃕. It was also shaken to avert the flooding of the Nile 𓈗 and to frighten away Set 𓁣. Isis 𓊨𓁐 in her role as mother and creator was depicted holding a pail symbolizing the flooding of the Nile, in one hand and a sistrum 𓁙 in the other. The goddess Bast too is often depicted holding a sistrum, symbolizing her role as a goddess of dance 𓀥𓁙, joy, and festivity. #egypt #egyptian #hieroglyphics #ancient #ancientegypt #egyptian #hieroglyphics #tutankhamun #pharaoh #tomb #sarcafogus #gold #inlay #stones #vulture #scarab #worldtourismday #thisisegypt #myegypt #egyptologist #akhenaten #temple #amenhotep #myegypt #egyptiangoddess #egyptology #sistrum #bastet #isis #hathor #instrument
Offered my services to CSUSB to teach Egyptology. There are many different areas for this kind of Ford of archaeology such as dynasties, timelines, and so on. My speciality at the moment would be the 4th Dynasty and Naqada period of preDynasties, the religions of both kingdoms, and the tattoo culture of Egypt. My latest work is in fact based on identifying African kings of Egypt and so on through ritual scarification tattoos #Egypt #csusb #egyptology #egyptiantattoo #egyptologie #egyptiane #egyptologybooks #msu #ucla #mma #israel #strongman #comiccon #comics #powerlfiting #bodybuilding

@vintage_egyptologist Here I twirl in the upper backyard of our house, while ominous clouds swirl overhead, during a photoshoot by @rcallahanphoto for @wildfellhall —photos and fabulous vintage items going up for sale at 11am today (DM @wildfellhall for the password and sign up for the newsletter!). My attire here is all for sale, with the exception of the gold lamé cloche from @thegladghost , which is from my own collection. This could well illustrate a passage from the Wisdom of Ptahhotep that says an angry woman's eye is her storm wind. Darkening storm clouds are common for North America and elsewhere, but for Egypt they upset the natural order of the solar orb traveling through unclouded skies. In Egyptian texts they are forces of chaos when directed in toward Egyptians, but raw power of divine retribution when directed against outer foes. The warrior king of Egypt may appear to enemies as a destructive storm—so in a text on the east face of the south tower of the First Pylon of the great temple of Medinet Habu: "I am causing that they see your majesty like a clouded sky, pregnant with a storm wind, which has removed trees by the roots." In the poem on the twin "rhetorical" stelae of the great temple of Abu Simbel, Ramesses II appears as the wind of a storm at sea, whipping up great waves with which to engulf the enemies of Egypt. At the Battle of Kadesh, Ramesses II charges the Hittites like a storm wind, and in a A Ramesside poetical rext concerning Thutmosis ill, "a hostile wind" in which are three warlike Monthu-deities comes to assist the king. . #truevintageootd #vintagelove #stormcloud #truevintage #kimono #vintagebeauty #vintageclothing #twirling #ancienthistory #1960s #vintagetights #hieroglyphs #1930s #vintagestyle #egyptologist #egyptology #ancientegypt #historichome
"Sekhmet" Illustrated by @133art 🔺 Sekhmet is also a solar deity, sometimes called the daughter of Ra and often associated with the goddesses Hathor and Bastet. She bears the Uraeus, which associates her with Wadjet and royalty, and the solar disk. #kemet #kemetic #nubian #egyptian #egyptians #egyptianart #bast #egyptiangoddess #ancientegypt #egyptology #hieroglyphics #ankh #pharaoh #pharoah #pharaohs #nubia #aset #iset #ausar #heru #anpu #templeofkemet #nefertiti #bastet #cleopatra #isis #horus #anubis #ra #hotep

It’s always fascinating to see how artists work! This sketch on a shard of limestone shows the artist’s red grid lines and carefully drawn wig and facial details, along with the classic Egyptian stylized eye makeup. Found in the “chip dump” below the tomb chapel of Senenmut - Hatshepsut’s High Steward, architect, and personal favorite - it’s thought to be of Senenmut himself. 18th Dynasty, ca. 1479-1458 BC, Now in Gallery 116 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. @metmuseum #egyptology #metmuseum #ancientegypt . . . #senenmut #hatshepsut #pharaoh #egyptian #ancientegyptian #egypt #newyorkcity #museum #hieroglyphics #hieroglyphs #mummy #archaeology #egyptianmakeup #egyptianart #antiquities #kemet #ancientart #newkingdom #historynerd #history #architect #pyramidprintworks #artistsatwork #tomb #limestone #ancienthistory

Por un problema con los vuelos llegamos a Abu Simbel sobre las 12 de la mañana, cuando más calor hacía, pero también cuando menos gente había, pudimos disfrutar del complejo prácticamente solos como recompensa 😊. . Sabíais que Abu Simbel no está en su lugar original???. Por riesgo a que se inundara por el Nilo tras la construcción de la presa de Asuan. Entre 1964 y 1969, todo el templo fue cuidadosamente partido en grandes bloques , desmantelado, elevado y reemsamblado en una nueva ubicación 65m más alta y 200m más lejos del río, ha sido uno de los mayores desafíos de la ingeniería arqueológica en la historia. . Aunque el templo no esté en su lugar original para nosotros no pierde nada de encantó, a vosotros que os parece? . Por cierto, que tal vuestro finde?? Nosotros volvemos con las pilas cargadas!! Feliz inicio de semana a todos 😗 . . #travelpic #travellove #traveladdict #traveller #travelphoto #travelgram #travelblogger #travelife #travelphotography #instaviajeros #viajerosporelmundo #viajesporelmundo #viajerossinmas #viajaresvivir #viajar #viajerosoy #aroundtheworld #wanderlust #egypt #egyptians #egyptology #egiptoesseguro #egipto #egiptología #abusimbel #viajerosconfesos #viajeroscallejeros #lonelyplanettraveller

What do you get when you cross a soul that is ancient with a heart that is young, wild and free? Well one things for sure, baby. You get a crash course in sense and sensuality.

I love to travel, and out of all the places I have been to, visiting 🇪🇬 #Egypt has been one of the best experiences. It's a place that I have wanted to visit since I was a kid and when I finally got to stand underneath the great pyramids, there is nothing more amazing and exciting. 😍 ___ #365daysofinstagram #egypt #egyptgoddess #egyptology #doyoutravel #dametraveler #travelbug #travelgram #travelphotography #instapassport #stayandwander #wanderlust #womanwhoexplore #instagood #instagram #instapic #instatravel #igtravel #experienceegypt #ancientegypt #africa #traveljunkie #unlimitedegypt
Mummification Process Ancient Egyptian embalming. Historical artwork of ancient Egyptians removing abdominal organs and gut before embalming. After death the ancient Egyptians would immerse the body in bicarbonate of soda, inject the arteries with balsams, and remove the contents of the torso and replace them with bituminous and aromatic substances. Finally the body was wrapped in cloths. The process was done to preserve the body. This kept a person's life-force (known as Ka) intact according to Egyptian belief.

Imhotep Museum ~ Do you imagine a museum with various “first” & “most ancient” items??? 🤔 Right!! 😉 that’s the place to go! To finish your visit to Saqqara in a right way, you’ve gotta go inside the museum and let yourself admire the beautiful findings inside. It’s considerably a small museum so it can be seen in 30-45 minutes or a little more if you are really interested 👌🏼 ~ It’s also #wheelchairaccessible ~ Guys! Don’t hesitate to DM me if you need more info about the place or traveling to Cairo ~ ~ #2lulusdiscoveries #viaggiareconbambini #adventurefamily #raiseawildchild #adventureswithchildren #travellingwithkids #viajarenfamilia #worldtravelers #travelfamily #familytravelblog #familytravels #travelmum #travelmoments #travelinspo #familyadventure #travellingtheworld #getlostnow #travelnow #seetheworld #travelforlife #travelblogging #letsgoeverywhere #archeology #imhotep #offthebeatenpath #egitto #egyptology #egipto #culturetrip
