Because of that divine paternity for the prince, Amun became the principal god during the New Kingdom. In reality the king delegated his duties to the priests, with the exception of special occasions. The continuity of the cult was regarded as fundamental for the wellbeing and order in the life of the country and its inhabitants. Besides this state-securing worship, provate expressions of piety are known, too.Taking place in the offering-hall. Purification of the oblations (flowers, wine, food) with water, incense and myrrhCeremonial naming of the single offers and placing on the altar = the meal of the god and the regeneration of his life forceNot only the 'traditional' deities were honored with prayers, oblations and sacrifices, but deified Pharaohs and 'normal' deceased persons, too. The funerary temples and shrines served that purpose. Just like the gods manifested themselves in their idols, the transformed deceased manifested themselves by means of their 'Ba' in the statues of their funerary temple. Land endowments provided living and maintenance for the priests and the cult at the funerary temples. In the New Kingdom, most of the funerary temples firstly were dedicated to Amun (the exception: the temple of Pharaoh Seti I. in Abydos, dedicated to Osiris) and secondly to the deceased Pharaoh. Outside the royals, the family of the deceased provided for the funerary cult and the little shrines or stela. If they were wealthy enough, they payed a priest to do the rituals, too.In the village of the craftsmen at Deir-el-Medina near the Valley of the Kings, in Ancient Egypt's times called "the Place of Truth", the inhabitants honored the founder of the village, Pharaoh Amenhotep I. and his wife, as local saints and patrons; dedicated them chapels and festivities. This particular devotion for Amenhotep I. can be traced on numerous stela and statues found in the village.During the funerary ritual, the offering formulas inscribed at the funerary stela were recited, libations and offerings made. The family gathered regularly in the little funerary chapel or the garden belonging to it. They prayed to their ancestors, but also informed them about their needs and expected help in certain situations. Archeologists even have found letters to the dead, in which the survivors complain, the deceased should do more for them and avert evil from someone. Some survivors sound very decepted and sad and ask why the deceased, now so close to the Gods, had forgotten them on earth.Shipping : 7 to 12 days by DHL express with track number and Ebay support..Combined package : save your money For example (shipping cost for biggest item + half shipping cost of second item + half shipping cost of third item + Quarter shipping cost of fourth item + Quarter shipping cost of fifth + free shipping for any item more .)Duties and responsibilities : Your responsibility is the payment and the fair feedback,,and our responsibility is to receive your item as the picture exactly and the material as description exactly,, Therefore we recommend that you see the picture well and then take your decision and take your responsibility..Thank you and appreciate your time.......
