A Slide Show of Egyptian coffins and funerary art.
Egyptian tombs were covered heiroglyphs (Egyptian writing) and symbols that helped the soul enter the Underworld.
Both men and women were given tombs.
Scenes on the tomb depicted scenes of the Underworld.
Shabtis were made to be "servants" for the dead in the Underworld.
