Holy birds in ancient Egypt
Welcome again dear readers, today we will continue our talk about the Pharaonic Idols. But this time we will only mention birds. we will make Egypt tour packages to see the Holy Birds.
The birds had a special place among the ancient Egyptians and Egyptian civilization facts, they sanctified it, and they tamed it and ate it. And made it a symbol of worship. We will tell you now about the most important birds that have sanctified them.
The most famous falcon (Horus)…the God of war and justice. The secret of worship is that it has no eyelids, and it describes with God because God does not lose sight of humans, and always flies high and hunts his prey on top, and does not eat the carcass. In the famous story of his killing of his uncle (cit), the god of evil, in retaliation for the death of his father Osiris, the ancients took the Horus eye (Ain Horus) as an amulet and a religious symbol that protects them from envy and expels the evil spirit from the house. Because the god Horus had given his eye to his father hoping to return to life again.
Goose…Ancient Egyptians and Egyptian civilization facts cared about raising ducks and geese from the time of the ancient state until the modern state. They were seen on the (battlefield) painting, and are kept at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. As well as in the (Midiom geese) painting, that belongs to the fourth family. As well as the Greater Harris Papyrus, where hundreds of thousands of birds have been dedicated to the temples of birds: pigeons, ducks, geese, crane, and quail. The geese are an aggressive bird, but the ancient Egyptian tamed it. He became a linguistic symbol of hieroglyphic writing.
And now with the bird, which was punished by King Ramses II (Owl)…Pharaonic Owl, ranging in length from 46 to 50 cm. People consider it a symbol of pessimism, but this idea was taken to change in some women, so they decorated it and wear it as an accessory and draw it as Tattoo. Although the owl did not have a religious status, it received a lot of respect. It was mummified and made many statues, and made it a key character in the hieroglyphic language as a letter (M). The ancient Egyptians believed that the spirit of the dead man flies at night in the air, in the form of a bird with a human head resembling an owl. And the women took her as an adornment in her jewelry until the owl struck King Ramses II with its wings. The king was angry and then punished it. Then the owl became a harbinger of misfortune and was called Om Quqe.
Apogee …The ancient Egyptians and Egyptian civilization facts believed that he could write, so they made him the god of writing and called him “Thoth” from the era of the ancient state until the era of the end of the families. They also sanctified the eagle and rooster and considered it a symbol of the dawn and associated with the beginning and end of the day. The summary of the speech, that the ancient Egyptian was catching birds with nets and shooting stick and by a trap for theirs. The ancient Egyptian did not know the slaughter. He was twisting the heads of birds before they cock it.
