mimi's art gallery
A gallery with ancient Egyptian art.
I think that this may have been a Eye of Horus. A Eye of Horus is the ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. Horus was the god of the sun, sky and kingship.
This is a decorated jug. I think that is was most likely owned by a upper class person and was either used to hold water or was just to look at.
This is the head of a statue of the god Osiris. He was the god of the afterlife,the underworld and the dead. This statue was likely in a temple of Osiris.
In ancient Egyptian times, the lion represented strength, power and leadership. Also there god Sekhmet is depicted with a lion head
This is a Ritual Knife made of wood and stone. It was likely used to sacrifice animals to the gods.
This ring had Ramesses's IV name inscribed in. It was likely owned by Ramesse's IV himself or some sort of nobility. It is made of silver.
The is a beard that came of the statue of a Egyptian god. I think that it may have been on the sarcophagus of a pharaoh because they where thought to be gods and because most sarcophagus had a beard.
