Egyptian Honor

In the Egyptian culture there are several things that are praised and symbolized based on characteristics and significance of ownership. This collection should bring that concept to life, as we view the authority of the Egyptian lion to the reasoning of the many temples of this land. It said that Egypt was discovered around 3100-2686 BC. Research states that the country was divided by the Nile into the North and South kingdoms, but around 3300 BC King Menes gained control over the entire country and joined the two lands. His empowerment lead to the foundation of the countries capital being at "White Wall" later known as Memphis, and currently know as the great city of Cario. Egyptian culture has an significant influence on the way things are done and seen today. They have also contributed a great amount of knowledge to some numerical, and scientific systems as well. This land has been sculptured its self over hundreds and hundreds of years. There are several monumental places here that have been named sacred and hold their place in history's name. You may visit and be able to view the well known Great Sphinx, and the hundreds of pyramids crafted overtime. You'll also see in this presentation some artifacts, temples, and a sarcophagus. All of the images shown will range from 1479BC-15BC. There is an depiction of Thoth in the form of an ibis head. This can also be found in the form of a baboons head as well. Thoth is a God of the Egyptian pantheon, and is only found this way in art. He stands as a man but takes on these animals heads. He is best known as a God of knowledge, and for his calculations of the heavens, stars, earth, and all that's in it. There's also the temple of Dendur which is now located at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     SOURCES
