Item:143348015350The ancient Egyptians believed in many different gods and goddesses. Each one with their own role to play in maintaining peace and harmony across the land. It was important to recognise and worship these gods and goddesses so that life continued smoothly. ***ANUBIS Was a jackal headed god who was associated with death and was the guardian of cemeteries. He was a guide to the dead and also played a aprt in the judgement of the dead, ensuring that the scales did not tip in favour of the feather which was weighted against the heart! During the Opening of the Mouth ceremony and mummification, priests often wore masks representing Anubis. HORUS was either represented as a falcon, or as a man with a falcon's head and was the god of the sky. His father was Osiris and his mother Isis. Horus' left eye was seen as the moon, and his right eye the sun and that they crossed the sky when he flew across it. In ancient Egypt, the Wadjet Eye was an important symbol of power and was considered a powerful protective amulet. OSIRIS was the god of the underworld. He became the most prominent god in the Middle and New Kingdoms, amongst the common people of Egypt. In Osiris, the people saw the possibility that all Egyptians have the chance of an afterlife, not just the Pharaoh, which was commonly believed during the Old Kingdom period. In Ancient Egypt, the cat was worshiped as a sacred animal. BAST or BASTET was usually seen as a gentle protective goddess with the body of a woman and the head of a cat. She sometimes appeared with the head of a lioness to protect the king in battle. She was also the protector of cats, women and children and the goddess of sunrise. ***This set of four amulets of Egyptian gods & goddesses is cast in England in traditional lead free pewter.
