9781558748859: The Egyptian Book of Life: Symbolism

The ancient Egyptians created stories, or myths, to explain their perception of universal principles such as space, time, life and death. These stories both entertained and educated and were passed down from generation to generation like treasured heirlooms. The deeper meaning of these "myths" was often deliberately camouflaged in subtle symbolism accessible only to the sincere seeker of wisdom. Within this context, the ancient Egyptians present an orderly and extensive body of knowledge that encompasses a wide range of topics such as art, music, architecture, agriculture, medicine, astronomy, astrology, geometry, physics and more.

This beautifully illustrated full-color guidebook follows a series of 50 panels reproduced from Egyptian temple and tomb wall paintings and friezes as displayed in the Reading Etc. retail stores and available for purchase. The symbolism of each is described as well as the potential benefit of displaying them. The Ancient Egyptians themselves painted and sculpted these scenes in the belief that they would create not only beautiful works of art but serve as tools or talismans to effect happiness and well-being. The result is a legacy left by the ancient Egyptians for future generations to reflect upon.
