In this exhibition there are four goddesses and one god that will give you an idea of what Egyptian's believed in. Ancient Egypt had over 2,000 names of gods. Egyptians would worship more then one god. Villages would chose gods to represent and many individuals would chose a god depending on their profession. God's were characters in myths that described and explained the ancient Egyptian belief of the universe. Egyptian's would see their gods through human, animal and hybrid forms. Animals were chosen to represent the powers of the gods as well as crowns and headdress for symbol of power and status. God's were assumed to be present throughout the world capable of influencing natural events, and the course of human lives. Egyptians prayed for help, used rituals to compel gods to act and called upon them for advise. Human relations with their gods were a fundamental part of Egyptian society (www.wikipedia.org). Temples were built in honor of their god or goddesses and daily rituals took place in the temples where the gods were cared for by a priest. Festivals were a time where everyone could worship all the different gods and goddesses.
