THE GRANDJOUR OF EGYPT
Egypt and the Egyptian Art has always been a passion of mine. I have worked for about 10 years to compile pictures and graphics and art from Egypt. I do not know what each of these are, some I do. But you will recognze the writings, the color, and atmosphere depicted here. I wish to give credit to all the museums and ftp sites for their work compilling these also.
THIS PAGE WILL BE EXTREMELY GRAPHICS HEAVY. PLEASE GIVE IT TIME TO LOAD.
WHAT IS INSIDE THE PYRAMIDS?
Inside the pyramids are many beautiful and amazing prayers and pictures of prayers to many gods and goddesses called 'spells'. They spells assured the dead of safe passage into the next life. They are what are pictured in the wall paintings in the pyramids. It would take months of web pages for you to know all of it, so this will be a brief description of some of the information on the gods. Watch my other web pages in this grouping for more information.

Nut was called the goddess of the sky. She was the sister to Geb. Nut was a mother-goddess who had many children. They were Osiris and Isis and Seth and Nephthys. Nut was to represent the womb. She stretches from horizon to horizon in the sky. Nut is also pictured as a large sow, suckling many piglets. Nut is also called the mother of the sun and the moon.
Nephthys is the daughter to Nut. Nephthys is called the Lady of the House and had no children with Seth, her first husband. She and OSIRIS had anubis.
Anubis is called the jackal headed god. He is guardian of the cemetry. He is supposed to guide the dead through into the next life. He also supervises the "weighing of the heart" where everyone that dies must weight their heart against the feather of Maat to see if they are worthy. The heart of the dead is considered left in the body after death for the conscience of the person to be judged. If they are judged bad, the god Thoth eats their heart.
The image below is for remembrance of a young web page designer that passed on young. This picture, I hope, is a link to her pages.
