From her cobra-skin gown to her Eye of Ra headdress, this statue is cast in quality designer resin and finely hand-painted in faux gold, ebony and the rich colors of the Egyptian palette. Isis, or Isi, in the Egyptian language Aset, is an Egyptian deity belonging to the religion of Ancient Egypt. She Goddess of life, healing, fertility, magic and medicine, she is originally from Behbeit el-Hagar, in the Nile Delta. She was originally a celestial deity, associated with royalty for having been primarily the personification of the throne as shown by her cartouche which includes the hieroglyph “Throne“, she was part of the Enneade. Isis was one of the main goddesses of the ancient Egyptian religion, whose cult spread throughout the Greco-Roman world.

She was first mentioned during her ancient reign as one of the protagonists of the myth of Osiris, in which she resurrects her husband, the Divine King Osiris, after her assassination, and creates and protects the she heir to her Horus. Her relationships with humans were based on her actions in her myth. It was believed that she helped the dead to pass into the afterlife as she had helped Osiris. She was considered the divine mother of the pharaoh, who was compared to Horus, and her maternal behavior was invoked in the healing spells. She originally had a limited function in royal and temple rites, although she was more important within funerary practices and magical texts. During the first millennium BC, Osiris and Isis became the most revered Egyptian Gods. Rulers in Egypt and Nubia began building temples mostly dedicated to Isis, and her temple in Philae was a religious center for both Egyptians and Nubians. Isis brought within herself many traits of other deities, particularly Hator, an important goddess of previous centuries. The magical powers attributed to Isis were greater than those of the other Gods, and she was said to protect the kingdom from her enemies, to rule the heavens and the natural world, and to have power over fate itself. During the Hellenistic period, when Egypt was ruled by the Greeks, Isis began to be worshiped by both the Greeks and Egyptians, along with a new god, Serapis. Their cult spread throughout the Mediterranean world.

The Greek followers of Isis attributed to her new traits taken from other Greek Gods, such as the invention of marriage and the protection of ships. Additionally, she retained strong ties to Egypt and other Egyptian gods who were popular within the Hellenistic world, such as Osiris and Harpocrates. When the Hellenistic culture was absorbed by Rome in the first century BC, the cult of Isis became part of the Roman religion. Her followers were a small part of the population of the Roman Empire, but signs of her cult have been found in many of her territories. Her cult developed distinctive festivals, such as Navigium Isidis, along with initiation ceremonies similar to those of other Greco-Roman Mystery Cults. Some of her followers claimed that Isis’s divine powers surpassed all others of the ancient world. The cult of Isis ended with the rise of Christianity during the 4th and 5th centuries AD. Her worship may have influenced some Christian beliefs and practices, such as the Worship of Mary, but the evidence for this influence is ambiguous and often controversial. Thereafter, Isis continued to appear in Western culture, particularly within modern esoteric and paganism, often as a personification of the nature or feminine aspect of divinity. Isis Egyptian Goddess of Beauty Statue measures: 3 inches / 7.5 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm x 6.5 inches / 16.5 cm.

Wings of Horus Altar Side Table Statue, Egyptian & Symbolic Statues, Winged Sun Altar Side Table Statue

Wings of Horus Altar Side Table Statue, Egyptian & Symbolic Statues, Winged Sun Altar Side Table Statue

Wings of Horus Altar Side Table Statue

This Wings of Horus Altar Side Table Statue is a creative combination of style and function. The rich details, from red sun disk to cobra snakes, look wonderful. High-quality egyptian decor, hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with durable designer resin, this Wings of Horus side table is hand painted in faux gold and the rich tones of the Egyptian palette and topped with a glass table top. Horus the Falcon God spreads his wings as a 360° statue, awe-inspiring from any angle beneath a 19.5 inches / 49.5 cm diameter, bevel-edged glass table top secured by a steady fulcrum pivot. Egyptian God Horus, one of the most significant Egyptian deities, Horus is the God of the Sky, war and hunting. He is often depicted as a falcon or a man with the head of a falcon. Since Horus was said to be the sky, he was considered to also contain the Sun and Moon. Egyptians believed that the Sun was his right eye and the Moon his left, and that they traversed the sky when he, a falcon, flew across it. Later, the reason that the Moon was not as bright as the Sun was explained by a tale, known as The Contendings of Horus and Seth. In this tale, it was said that Set, the patron of Upper Egypt, and Horus, the patron of Lower Egypt, had battled for Egypt brutally, with neither side victorious, until eventually, the gods sided with Horus. As Horus was the ultimate victor he became known as ḥr.w wr “Horus the Great“, but more usually translated “Horus the Elder“. In the struggle, Set had lost a testicle, and Horus’ eye was gouged out.

The Winged Sun is a symbol that likely existed even before the Egyptian civilization. Archeologists have found carved winged suns in ancient stones, making this symbol one of the first recorded in human history. In Egyptian tradition, the Winged Sun appeared in the Old Kingdom, and it remained important throughout the history of this culture. The representations of this symbol show it as its name indicates, a sun or solar disk in the center with spread wings on either. In many cases, the Winged Sun also had Egyptian cobras flanking it. This symbol represented royalty, power, and divinity in Ancient Egypt, but it also held significance in other eastern regions like Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and Persia. Due to its associations with the sun, the Winged Sun was linked to the Sun God Ra. However, it’s most common associations were with Horus. At the start, the Winged Sun was the symbol of the Behdety, the God of the Midday Sun. In later times, this god became an aspect of Horus, so the Winged Sun was associated with him. When combined with Behdety, he became known as Horus of Behdet or Horus of Edfu. Since Horus was the protector of the kingship and a divine ruler, the Winged Sun had associations with these traits too. In the terrible fight between Horus and Set for the rule of Egypt, Horus flew to battle and opposed Set in the form of the Winged Sun. The most famous representation of the Winged Sun is still present in the Temple of Edfu.

In its female form, the Winged Sun represented the Goddess Hathor. Apart from the symbolism given by its connection with Horus and the Sun, the Winged Sun represented other important concepts for the Egyptians. The symbol became an amulet of protection over time. Since Horus had defeated the mighty antagonist Set in the form of the Winged Sun, this symbol became associated with protection against evil. From the Middle Kingdom onwards, the Egyptians used the Winged Sun as an amulet in tombs and in the sarcophagi of the pharaohs for protection. In Ancient Egypt, the Winged Sun was a symbol of the Power of the Sun, Royalty, the Soul, and Eternity. In this sense, the Winged Sun became an attribute of different deities in the myths. Its veneration in Ancient Egypt grew more famous by the millennia. This symbol was deemed as holding many powers and was related to the eternal fight between good and evil, light, and darkness. The Winged Sun shed light over the world and protected the skies and the Universe against those who wanted to cause pain and suffering. The Sun itself was a symbol of nourishment, power, and life. Without the Sun, Life could not exist the way it does, and the world would be immersed in eternal darkness. This idea strengthens the symbolism of the Winged Sun and the Goodness of the World.

Egyptian God Anubis Statue, Egyptian, Gods & Mythological Statues, Anubis Egyptian God of Underworld Mummification Statue

Egyptian God Anubis Statue, Egyptian, Gods & Mythological Statues, Anubis Egyptian God of Underworld Mummification Statue

Anubis Egyptian God of Underworld Mummification Statue

This Egyptian God Anubis Statue is made of designer composite resin, hand painted and polished. It depicts Anubis performing the mummification. Mummification is one of the defining customs in ancient Egyptian society for people today. The practice of preserving the human body is believed to be a quintessential feature of Egyptian life. Yet even mummification has a history of development and was accessible to different ranks of society in different ways during different periods. There were at least 3 different processes of mummification according to Herodotus. They range from “the most perfect” to the method employed by the “poorer classes“. The most expensive process was to preserve the body by dehydration and protect against pests, such as insects. Almost all of the actions Herodotus described serve 1 of these 2 functions. First, the brain was removed from the cranium through the nose, the gray matter was discarded. Modern mummy excavations have shown that instead of an iron hook inserted through the nose as Herodotus claims, a rod was used to liquefy the brain via the cranium, which then drained out the nose by gravity. The embalmers then rinsed the skull with certain drugs that mostly cleared any residue of brain tissue and also had the effect of killing bacteria. Next, the embalmers made an incision along the flank with a sharp blade fashioned from an Ethiopian stone and removed the contents of the abdomen.

Herodotus does not discuss the separate preservation of these organs and their placement either in special jars or back in the cavity, a process that was part of the most expensive embalming, according to archaeological evidence. The abdominal cavity was then rinsed with palm wine and an infusion of crushed, fragrant herbs and spices. The cavity was then filled with spices including myrrh, cassia, and, Herodotus notes, “every other sort of spice except frankincense“, also to preserve the person. The body was further dehydrated by placing it in natron, a naturally occurring salt, for 70 days. Herodotus insists that the body did not stay in the natron longer than 70 days. Any shorter time and the body is not completely dehydrated, any longer, and the body is too stiff to move into position for wrapping. The embalmers then wash the body again and wrapped it with linen bandages. The bandages were covered with a gum that modern research has shown is both waterproofing agent and an antimicrobial agent. At this point, the body was given back to the family. These “perfectmummies were then placed in wooden cases that were human-shaped. Richer people placed these wooden cases in stone Sarcophagi that provided further protection. The family placed the Sarcophagus in the tomb upright against the wall, according to Herodotus. Anubis Egyptian God of Underworld Mummification Statue sizes: 8 inches / 20.5 cm x 8 inches / 20.5 cm x 3 inches / 7.5 cm.

Easter Island Head Statue, Easter Island Statues, Natural Granite Appearance Moai Statue

Easter Island Head Statue, Easter Island Statues, Natural Granite Appearance Moai Statue

Natural Granite Appearance Easter Island Head Moai Statue

This Easter Island Head Statue has a natural texture that resembles real stone, making it a perfect garden accent. This particular statue is manufactured from a durable resin to replicate a stone statue, but has a rich and textured granite appearance that makes it look realistic as concrete or cement. The hand crafted casting features a rendering of the massive, iconic Moai Statue heads formed by the ancient Rapa Nui people. It may be lightweight, but it’s extremely durable. Even after installation, the statue can be filled with gravel or sand to add weight and stability. Its sturdiness ensures its stability in any environment, even in severe weather conditions. This statue is made of a type of resin that’s well known for its durability and lightweight properties. Instead of a heavy, expensive concrete statue, this Easter Island Head can be effortlessly carried and installed in seconds. The Moai are statues found on Easter Island, in most cases they are monolithic statues, that is, obtained and excavated from a single block of volcanic tuff. Some have on their heads a squat cylinder (pukao) obtained from another type of reddish tuff, interpreted as a headdress or as the hairstyle once widespread among the males of the island.

They are part of larger ceremonial complexes, as they are similarly known from other areas of Polynesian culture. The exact age of the Moai is controversial, but it has now been established that they are no more than 1500 years old at all. Sebastian Englert numbered and cataloged over 638 statues, the Archaeological Survey and Statue Project from 1969 to 1976 determined 887, but they were probably over 1000 originally. High from 2.5 meters / 8.2 foot up to 10 meters / 32.8 foot (there is one, however incomplete, of 21 meters / 68.9 foot), often only the heads of the statues are visible, but below there is almost always an underground body, on the back of the statues are engraved with symbols in rongorongo, in particular the “sickle” called Vaka, which could represent a canoe, probably these symbols engraved on the statues indicate the identity of the artist, or group, owner of the work. Those about 10 meters / 32.8 foot high have a weight that can vary from 70 to 80 tons. The Moai all have a similar appearance, the lips tightened with the chin up, the attitude is hieratic and severe enough to arouse respect. The figures end immediately below the navel, with some statues the “maro“, the loincloth that covers the penis, indicated.

The fingers (nails) of the hands and ears are extremely long. The figures also differ in the individually shaped thong knot (a tattoo according to a different interpretation) on the lower back. However, these subtleties were not maintained in all figures. Today the eye sockets are empty, but they once had an obsidian pupil surrounded by a white coral sclera (thanks to the archaeological excavations at Anakena Beach, 1978ahu Nau Nau“), as can be seen in the only moai sighted person remained (and restored). There are 1000 known Moais on the surface of the island. Almost all of these have been obtained from a basaltic tuff from the Rano Raraku crater, where there are almost 400 incomplete statues. This heterogeneous-grained rock is relatively soft, unlike basalt, which results from the solidification of a magma. The hats, on the other hand, were obtained from a reddish tuff from the small crater of Puna Pau, about 10 kilometers / 5.4 miles from Rano Raraku. There is evidence that some of the statues may have been painted in color. Alfred MĂ©traux found traces of red and black paint in a protected location on a statue on Ahu Vinapu.

The copy in the British Museum also shows slight traces of red and white paint. Despite the seemingly uniform appearance, each figure was individualized. Wilhelm Geiseler reports that a village chief was able to name every single Moai, even the unfinished statues on the Rano Raraku. Some moais are also decorated, for example an unfinished statue of Rano Raraku is engraved with a ship. The Moai with the name Hoa Hakananai’a (Rapa Nui for “stolen friend” or “hidden friend“) is unique. The figure was found in a house of the Orongo cult site on the edge of the Rano Kao crater and is now in the British Museum in London. The appearance of the basalt sculpture, which is only 2.40 meters / 7.9 foot high, corresponds to the usual type, but the back is covered with depictions of birdmen, dance paddles (Ao and Rapa) and vulvas. Ethnologist Heide-Margaret Esen-Baur considers it the main sanctuary of the Tangata Manu cult on Easter Island. Thor Heyerdahl believed that the figure served as the prototype of all statues of the classical period. Natural Granite Appearance Moai Statue sizes: 15 inches / 38 cm x 12.5 inches / 31.5 cm x 28 inches / 71 cm.

Egyptian God Thoth Statue, Egyptian, Gods & Mythological Statues, Thoth Egyptian God of Writing and Wisdom with Papyrus Statue

Egyptian God Thoth Statue, Egyptian, Gods & Mythological Statues, Thoth Egyptian God of Writing and Wisdom with Papyrus Statue

Thoth Egyptian God of Writing and Wisdom with Papyrus Statue

This Egyptian God Thoth Statue is intricately sculpted in cold cast bronze in striking mythological detail. Mixing bronze powder with resin gives the piece an authentic metal appearance and you’ll marvel at the colored details that bring Thoth to life. A finely crafted and highly detailed work of art, great as a gift sure to excite any Mythology or Egyptian lover. In this highly detailed statue, Thoth is artistically captured writing on papyrus as the inventor of the written word. Thoth is an ancient Egyptian deity. In art, he was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon, animals sacred to him. His feminine counterpart was Seshat, and his wife was Ma’at. He was the god of the moon, wisdom, writing, hieroglyphs, science, magic, art, and judgment. His Greek equivalent is Hermes. Thoth’s chief temple was located in the city of Hermopolis. Later known as el-Ashmunein in Egyptian Arabic, it was partially destroyed in 1826. In Hermopolis, Thoth led “the Ogdoad“, a pantheon of 8 principal deities, and his spouse was Nehmetawy. He also had numerous shrines in other cities.

Thoth played many vital and prominent roles in Egyptian mythology, such as maintaining the Universe, and being one of the 2 deities (the other being Ma’at) who stood on either side of Ra‘s solar barque. In the later history of ancient Egypt, Thoth became heavily associated with the arbitration of godly disputes, the arts of magic, the system of writing, and the judgment of the dead. The Egyptian pronunciation of dhwty is not fully known, but may be reconstructed as dihautÄ«. This reconstruction is based on the Ancient Greek borrowing ThĹŤth or Theut and the fact that the name was transliterated into Sahidic Coptic variously as Thoout, ThĹŤth, Thoot, Thaut, Taautos, Thoor, as well as Bohairic Coptic ThĹŤout. These spellings reflect known sound changes from earlier Egyptian such as the loss of “d” palatalization and merger of “h” with h i.e. initial dh > th. The loss of pre-Coptic final y/j is also common. Following Egyptological convention, which eschews vowel reconstruction, the consonant skeleton dhwty would be rendered “Djehuti” and the god is sometimes found under this name.

However, the Greek form “Thoth” is more common. According to Theodor Hopfner, Thoth‘s Egyptian name written as dhwty originated from dhw, claimed to be the oldest known name for the ibis, normally written as hbj. The addition of -ty denotes that he possessed the attributes of the ibis. Hence Thoth’s name would mean “He who is like the Ibis“, according to this interpretation. Other forms of the name dhwty using older transcriptions include Jehuti, Jehuty, Tahuti, Tehuti, Zehuti, Techu, or Tetu. Multiple titles for Thoth, similar to the pharaonic titulary, are also known, including A, Sheps, Lord of Khemennu, Asten, Khenti, Mehi, Hab, and A’an. In addition, Thoth was also known by specific aspects of himself, for instance the Moon God Iah-Djehuty, representing the Moon for the entire month. The Greeks related Thoth to their God Hermes due to his similar attributes and functions. One of Thoth’s titles, “Thrice great“, was translated to the Greek (TrismĂ©gistos), making Hermes Trismegistus.

Masks of Anubis and Bastet Statue, Egyptian Statues, Masks of Ancient Egyptian God Anubis and Goddess Bastet Statue

Masks of Anubis and Bastet Statue, Egyptian Statues, Masks of Ancient Egyptian God Anubis and Goddess Bastet Statue

Masks of Ancient Egyptian God Anubis and Goddess Bastet Statue

These Masks represent Anubis, the jackal god of the afterlife and Bastet, the cat goddess and protectress of women. The bold Egyptian symbolism in these masks are perfect for display in house. The rich details and beautiful hand painting of these masks are wonderful, hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with durable designer resin, this Egyptian Mask Statues are hand painted in ebony black and the rich colors of the Egyptian palette. Anubis is the Egyptian god of mummification and the afterlife as well as the patron god of lost souls and the helpless. He is one of the oldest gods of Egypt, who most likely developed from the earlier (and much older) jackal god Wepwawet with whom he is often confused. Anubis’ image is seen on royal tombs from the First Dynasty of Egypt (3150-2890 BCE) but it is certain he had already developed a cult following prior to this period in order to be invoked on the tomb’s walls for protection. He is thought to have developed in response to wild dogs and jackals digging up newly buried corpses at some point in the Predynastic Period in Egypt (6000-3150 BCE) as the Egyptians believed a powerful canine god was the best protection against wild canines.

Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women’s secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children. As with many deities in Egyptian religion, she also played a role in the afterlife. She is sometimes depicted as a guide and helper to the dead although this was not one of her primary duties. She was the daughter of the Sun God Ra and is associated with the concept of the Eye of Ra (the all-seeing eye) and the Distant Goddess (a female deity who leaves Ra and returns to bring transfromation). Bastet was one of the most popular deities of ancient Egypt as she was the protector of everyone’s home and family. Masks of Ancient Egyptian God Anubis and Goddess Bastet Statue measures: Anubis’ Mask 6 inches / 15 cm x 4 inches / 10 cm x 11 inches / 28 cm, Bastet’s Mast 5 inches / 13 cm x 3 inches / 7.5 cm x 8 inches / 20 cm.

Egyptian God Horus Statue, Egyptian & Gods Statues, Egyptian God Horus Holding War Scepter Statue

Egyptian God Horus Statue, Egyptian & Gods Statues, Egyptian God Horus Holding War Scepter Statue

Egyptian God Horus Holding War Scepter Statue

This Egyptian God Horus Statue that Holding his War Scepter is made of cold cast resin with a powder bronze finish. A very well made and great looking piece of art. It stands as a scarecrow against dark forces. Horus or Heru, Hor, Har in Ancient Egyptian, is one of the most significant ancient Egyptian deities who served many functions, most notably God of Kingship and the Sky. He was worshipped from at least the late Prehistoric Egypt until the Ptolemaic Kingdom and Roman Egypt. Different forms of Horus are recorded in history and these are treated as distinct Gods by Egyptologists. These various forms may possibly be different manifestations of the same multi-layered deity in which certain attributes or syncretic relationships are emphasized, not necessarily in opposition but complementary to one another, consistent with how the Ancient Egyptians viewed the multiple facets of reality. He was most often depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner falcon or peregrine falcon, or as a man with a falcon head.

The earliest recorded form of Horus is the tutelary deity of Nekhen in Upper Egypt, who is the first known national god, specifically related to the ruling pharaoh who in time came to be regarded as a manifestation of Horus in life and Osiris in death. The most commonly encountered family relationship describes Horus as the son of Isis and Osiris, and he plays a key role in the Osiris myth as Osiris’s heir and the rival to Set, the murderer and brother of Osiris. In another tradition Hathor is regarded as his mother and sometimes as his wife. Claudius Aelianus wrote that Egyptians called the god ApolloHorus” in their own language. The Pyramid Texts (2400-2300 BC) describe the nature of the pharaoh in different characters as both Horus and Osiris. The pharaoh as Horus in life became the pharaoh as Osiris in death, where he was united with the other gods. New incarnations of Horus succeeded the deceased pharaoh on earth in the form of new pharaohs. The lineage of Horus, the eventual product of unions between the children of Atum, may have been a means to explain and justify pharaonic power.

The gods produced by Atum were all representative of cosmic and terrestrial forces in Egyptian life. By identifying Horus as the offspring of these forces, then identifying him with Atum himself, and finally identifying the Pharaoh with Horus, the Pharaoh theologically had dominion over all the world. Horus was born to the goddess Isis after she retrieved all the dismembered body parts of her murdered husband Osiris, except his penis, which was thrown into the Nile and eaten by a catfish, or sometimes depicted as instead by a crab, and according to Plutarch‘s account used her magic powers to resurrect Osiris and fashion a phallus to conceive her son (older Egyptian accounts have the penis of Osiris surviving). After becoming pregnant with Horus, Isis fled to the Nile Delta marshlands to hide from her brother Set, who jealously killed Osiris and who she knew would want to kill their son. There Isis bore a divine son, Horus. Egyptian God Horus Holding War Scepter Statue measures: 6 inches / 15 cm x 4.1 inches / 10.5 cm x 10.4 inches / 26.5 cm.

Made of cold cast resin, he has a metallic bronze finish that gives him the look of metal, and has hand painted accents to show off the detail. The bottom is felted to help keep your furniture scratch-free. He makes a great gift for enthusiasts of ancient Egypt mythology. Anubis, also known as Inpudecay“, was the ancient Egyptian Jackal-God of the Underworld and Mummification. Anubis was worshipped as the inventor of embalming and the one who embalmed the dead Osiris, thereby helping to preserve him that he might live again. The oldest known mention of Anubis is in the Old Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the king.

Anubis is also a God in Tuareg Berber mythology. Anubis takes various titles in connection with his funerary role, such as He-Who-Is-Upon-His-Mountain, which underscores his importance as a protector of the deceased and their tombs, and the title He-Who-Is-In-The-Place-Of-Embalming, associating him with the process of mummification. Like many ancient Egyptian deities, Anubis assumes different roles in various contexts, and no public procession in Egypt would be conducted without an Anubis to march at the head. There are a lot of different versions about his birth and conception. In early mythology, he is protrayed as a son of Ra. In the Coffin Texts from the First Intermediate Period (2181-2055 BC), he is the son of Hesat or Bastet. Some traditions depicted him as son of Ra and Nephthys, others as the illegitimate son of Nephthys and Osiris, that was later adopted by Usir‘ wife, Aset, and others as son of Nephthys and Set.

In the version which he is the son of Nephthys and Usir, it is said that Nephthys tricked her brother, Usir, into fathering her child by using Aset appeareance. Nephthys told her husband-brother, Set, that the child was his but him soon found out. As Set hated Usir, he then planned to murder the child when he was born. Nephthys therefore, abandoned the child at birth hiding him in the marshes by the Nile River. The child was taken care by jackals and eventually found by Aset that raised Inpu as her own kid. When he became an adult, the repaid her by becoming her protector. The version in which he is the son of Nephthys and Set is not that different. It is said that, after Nephthys got pregnant with Set’s child, she tried to hide the pregnancy as she knew how violent Set could be. Fearing for the baby, Nephthys gave Inpu to Aset that eventually raised him. Ancient Egyptian Jackal God Anubis Bust Statue sizes: 5 inches / 13 cm x 4.5 inches / 11.5 cm x 9.5 inches / 24 cm.

Egyptian Eye of Horus Statue, Egyptian & Symbolic Statues, “Eye of Horus Symbol of Rebirth” Statue

Egyptian Eye of Horus Statue, Egyptian & Symbolic Statues, "Eye of Horus Symbol of Rebirth" Statue

Egyptian Eye of Horus “Symbol of Rebirth” Statue

This Egyptian Eye of Horus Statue is hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with high quality designer resin. Hang this popular amulet for protection and good luck! Symbolizing the power of the God of light, this Eye of Horus is intricately carved, then cast in quality designer resin and hand-painted in full color. The Eye of Horus (also known as the Eye of Ra) is the Symbol that identifies the Rebirth. The Eye of Horus is an Egyptian Hieroglyph that resembles a human eye with a forehead and a line of eyeliner that extends outwards. The lower part represents a stylized plumage of birds, to recall the features of a hawk attributed to the God. Used in ancient times as an emblem of royalty and amulet for the protection of the dead, the Eye of Horus was a symbol of indestructibility that favors rebirth, so much so that it was also found under the 12th layer of bandages that wrapped the mummy of Tutankhamun. A symbol in many ways ambiguous, it describes the state of recovered integrity. In the Pharaonic Era, for example, it represented the eternal renewal of the divine kingship of the King of kings. In astronomy, on the other hand, it is the symbol of the Moon that refers to the growing completion of the Moon.

It was said that in ancient times, Egypt was ruled by the God Osiris. He had a brother, Seth, and 2 sisters, Isis and Nephthys. One day Seth, jealous of his brother, treacherously killed him and hid his body. Isis, sister and wife of Osiris, went in search of the body and, after she found it, thanks to her magical arts, she managed to become pregnant with the dead God. Not content, Seth managed to get hold of his brother’s body and reduced it into 14 pieces, which were scattered across the 7 branches of the Nile Delta. Helped by her sister, Isis was able to reassemble the parts of Osiris’s body and resurrect him with the help of the God Anubis. But Osiris, unable to remain on earth, became the king of the kingdom of the dead. The son of Osiris and Isis, Horus, was thus raised by his mother in great secrecy in the papyrus of the Delta. Once an adult, Horus ousted his cruel uncle Seth from the throne. Thanks to the constant help of his mother and after a fight in which he lost an eye, the final victory over Seth allowed Horus to become the new ruler of all Egypt.

The Eye of Horus was represented not only as a protective amulet, but also to indicate which part of the Brain should be relied upon for particular “inner work“. (Eye of Horus & Pineal Gland & Dreams). During the discovery of one’s own higher self, in fact, reference was made to the Eye of Horus to indicate that whoever exhibited it was “awake and consciousin the reality in which they find themselves. The Eye of Horus, therefore, has also performed a particular protective function, mindful of the psyche, which will be activated to remain “alert” so as to escape from any external attacks. Rebirth is a word that not only has a literal meaning, but also indicates a strong renewal. A change of direction, a collective or individual turning point, capable of changing life. Over the centuries, many peoples have adopted this concept in their traditions, then giving it specific characters and, often, combining them with a figurative element. Symbols, figures, images: rebirth is shown in different ways, each linked to a specific tradition, to a precise meaning. “Eye of Horus Symbol of Rebirth” Statue sizes: 12 inches / 30.5 cm x 1.5 inches / 4 cm x 8.5 inches / 21.5 cm.

Egyptian Mythological God Sobek Statue

This stunning Statue of the Egyptian God Sobek is truly remarkable and has exquisite detail and the highest sculptural quality. In his hand he holds the Ankh Cross, an ancient and sacred Egyptian symbol that essentially symbolizes life. Sobek (also called Sebek) was an Ancient Egyptian God with a complex and elastic history and nature. He is associated with the Nile Crocodile or the West African Crocodile and is represented either in its form or as a human with a crocodile head. Sobek was also associated with pharaonic power, fertility, and military prowess, but served additionally as a protective deity with apotropaic qualities (remove or cancel a malignant magical influence), invoked especially for protection against the dangers presented by the Nile. Sobek enjoyed a longstanding presence in the ancient Egyptian Pantheon, from the Old Kingdom of Egypt (2686-2181 BCE) through the Roman period (30-350 CE). He is first known from several different Pyramid Texts of the Old Kingdom, particularly from spell PT 317. The spell, which praises the pharaoh as the living incarnation of the Crocodile God, reads: “Unis is Sobek, green of plumage, with alert face and raised fore, the splashing one who came from the thigh and tail of the great goddess in the sunlight… Unis has appeared as Sobek, Neith’s son. Unis will eat with his mouth, Unis will urinate and Unis will copulate with his penis. Unis is lord of semen, who takes women from their husbands to the place Unis likes according to his heart’s fancy”.

The origin of his name, Sbk in Egyptian, is debated among scholars, but many believe that it is derived from a causative of the verb “to impregnate“. This statue of Sobek was found at Amenemhat III‘s mortuary temple (which was connected to his pyramid at Hawara in the Faiyum), serving as a testament to this king’s devotion to Sobek. Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. This Late Period (400-250 BCE) statue shows Sobek bearing the falcon head of Re-Harakhti, illustrating the fusion of Sobek and Re into Sobek-Re. Walters Art Museum, Baltimore. Though Sobek was worshipped in the Old Kingdom, he truly gained prominence in the Middle Kingdom (2055-1650 BCE), most notably under the Twelfth Dynasty Pharaoh, Amenemhat III. Amenemhat III had taken a particular interest in the Faiyum of Egypt, a region heavily associated with Sobek. Amenemhat and many of his dynastic contemporaries engaged in building projects to promote Sobek, projects that were often executed in the Faiyum. In this period, Sobek also underwent an important change, he was often fused with the falcon-headed god of divine kingship, Horus.

This brought Sobek even closer with the Kings of Egypt, thereby giving him a place of greater prominence in the Egyptian Pantheon. The fusion added a finer level of complexity to the god’s nature, as he was adopted into the divine triad of Horus and his 2 parents: Osiris and Isis. Sobek first acquired a role as a Solar God through his connection to Horus, but this was further strengthened in later periods with the emergence of Sobek-Ra, a fusion of Sobek and Egypt’s primary Sun God, Ra. Sobek-Horus persisted as a figure in the New Kingdom (1550-1069 BCE), but it was not until the last dynasties of Egypt that Sobek-Ra gained prominence. This understanding of the god was maintained after the fall of Egypt’s last native dynasty in Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt (332 BCE – 390 CE). The prestige of both Sobek and Sobek-Ra endured in this time period and tributes to him attained greater prominence, both through the expansion of his dedicated cultic sites and a concerted scholarly effort to make him the subject of religious doctrine.

Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep III Royal Scarab Statue

Amenhotep III Royal Scarab Statue, finished in faux lapis lazuli blue, creates the liftable lid of this sculptural jewelry box, complete with ancient hieroglyphs written in gold along the edge, to store all your Egyptian jewelry as how it was done for the Gods and Egyptian Queen. Hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with durable designer resin, this Egyptian Royal Scarab include fine details such as Egyptian hieroglyphs which are painted by hand. Amenhotep III commissioned many commemorative scarabs to be sent as royal gifts that marked the accomplishments of his Egyptian dynasty. Scarab Beetles were prized because they mirrored the way the Egyptian Sun God Khepri was said to roll the sun across the horizon each day. This Amenhotep III Royal Scarab replica artifact is sculpted with a beetle’s head, wing case and legs, all in a beautifully compact form. The entire Egyptian sculptural box, including the liftable lid, is cast in quality designer resin and hand painted to replicate the faience earthenware and glazed blue lapis once highly prized by Egyptian royalty.

The Scarab Beetle, representing rebirth, was a popular image used in ancient Egypt as an amulet or seal to be worn as Egyptian jewelry or to commemorate an event such as those made by Pharaoh Amenhotep III. Amenhotep III, “Amun is Satisfied“, hellenized as Amenophis III, also known as Amenhotep the Magnificent or Amenhotep the Great, was the 9th pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty. According to different authors, he ruled Egypt from June 1386 to 1349 BC, or from June 1388 BC to December 1351/1350 BC, after his father Thutmose IV died. Amenhotep III was Thutmose’s son by a minor wife, Mutemwiya. His reign was a period of unprecedented prosperity and splendour, when Egypt reached the peak of its artistic and international power. When he died in the 38th or 39th year of his reign, his son initially ruled as Amenhotep IV, but then changed his own royal name to Akhenaten.

Scarabs instead were popular amulets and impression seals in Ancient Egypt. They survive in large numbers and, through their inscriptions and typology, they are an important source of information for archaeologists and historians of the ancient world. They also represent a significant body of ancient art. For reasons that are not clear (although likely connected to the religious significance of the Egyptian God Khepri), amulets in the form of Scarab Beetles had become enormously popular in Ancient Egypt by the early Middle Kingdom (2000 BCE) and remained popular for the rest of the pharaonic period and beyond. During that long period the function of scarabs repeatedly changed. Primarily amulets, they were also inscribed for use as personal or administrative seals or were incorporated into jewelry. Some scarabs were created for political or diplomatic purposes to commemorate or advertise royal achievements.

By the early New Kingdom, Heart Scarabs had become part of the battery of amulets protecting mummies. From the Middle Bronze Age, other ancient peoples of the Mediterranean and the Middle East imported scarabs from Egypt and also produced scarabs in Egyptian or local styles, especially in the Levant. In ancient Egyptian religion, the God Ra is seen as the star Sirius, when the star came to the horizon in the south 15 thousand years ago. Beetles of the family Scarabaeidae (dung beetle) roll dung into a ball. Because of its symbolically similar action, the scarab was seen as a reflection of the precession cycle of the star Sirius and as representing the idea of rebirth or regeneration on its swing in the south as it was viewed.
