Seller: egygate (86) 100%, Location: Egypt, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 352818259906 Egyptian Antique Colored Stela Tawaeret The Great Hippo and Crocodile God Of The Nile ! Item Historical Overview: This fragment of a stela (commemorative stone slab) originally illustrated a prayer invoking the "Taweret" literally means "The Great". The ancient Egyptians had good reason to fear, revere and mummify the magnificent crocodile. Despite its reputation, the crocodile is a devoted mother that mferociously protects its young. It’s been around for a long time, outliving the dinosaurs and still clinging on along the Nile. The crocodile was an interesting contributor to ancient Egyptian pharmacopoeia, the Egyptians had their own rationale and logic based on observations, trial and error. Their use of magic and spells is really not that different from our use of prayers and holy water, for example, to aid healing. In times of desperation there appears to be an innate human need to turn to supernatural means of assistance. It’s worth noting that magic wasn’t used in isolation in ancient Egypt. The doctors, priests and magicians worked together in providing healthcare, and thus the crocodile appears in remedies, prayers and spells, all in the hope to help the living and the deceased.
