INTRODUTION: In my exhibition I have decided to focus on the gods relating to the ancient Egyptian “Book of the Dead of Hunefer: Weighing of the Heart.” This page from the “Book of the Dead of Hunefer” features some of ancient Egypt’s most important gods: Osiris: Judge of the dead and ruler of the underworld, Horus: Son of Osiris, Isis: Wife of Osiris and mother of Horus, Anubis: Guardian of the underworld, and finally Thoth: The record keeper. After studying the picture of “The Book of the Dead of Hunefer: Weighing of the Heart” shown in the textbook, Janson’s History of Art (Davies 78), I have been very intrigued with how the ancient Egyptian culture depicted the afterlife and the judgment of the soul. Like many non-Christian cultures and religions, the Egyptians believed in an afterlife that must be earned, but I personally find the Egyptian’s belief of works and judgment more intriguing than most cultures’. The ancient Egyptians believed that, in order to have a pleasurable afterlife one must live according to what they called ma’at, or harmony and order. Ma’at was also believed to be a goddess (the goddess of justice and order) who was commonly depicted as an ostrich feather, as she was in “The Book of the Dead of Hunefer” (Davies 52). Summarizing the description of the page from "The Book of the Dead of Hunefer" from Janson’s History of Art (Davies 52), Anubis is shown weighing Hunefer’s deeds (his heart) against an ostrich feather (representation of ma’at), while Thoth keeps record. Ammut is the beast watching the judgment of the Scales of Ma’at and will devour Hunefer if the scale shows he did not live according to ma’at. Passing the test, Hunefer is presented by Hunefer to Osiris, who is accompanied by Isis and Nephthys, for the final judgment (Davies 78,79). In other words, the good or bad deeds of an individual would be the deciding factors of the individual’s afterlife; if he did not live a life of ma’at, he will not move on to the afterlife and will be devoured by the beast Ammut. This exhibition features ancient statues of Osiris, Horus, Isis, Anubis, and Thoth that share similar characteristics. All the statues are slender with a small array of colors (two major colors used), and each statue’s pose echoes of another’s. I purposely sought after artwork of the gods of “The Book of the Dead of Hunefer: Weighing of the Heart” with so many shared features because I wanted this exhibition to have a feel of order and unity, or ma’at. Although it is a pagan one, and I am in no way ashamed of my faith with the One God, Yahweh, I have deep respect and fascination in the ancient Egyptian culture, law, art, religion, and their undying strive for harmony and order. Everything the Egyptians created echoed unity, even in the style of their different artworks which had not changed for thousands of years. Proving that, as Davies put it, “Religion permeated every aspect of Egyptian life” (52), and living according to ma’at was key in everything they did. WORKS CITED: Davies, Penelope J. E., et al.
