Seller: luxorco2015 (631) 98.3%, Location: staines, Middlesex, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 173681409746 Rare Ancient Egyptian Faience Shabti (945-715 BC.) Great details with Hieroglyphic writing on the front. Size 22 cm high. The Egyptians believed the afterlife was a mirror-image of life on earth. When a person died their individual journey did not end but was merely translated from the earthly plane to the eternal. The soul stood in judgement in the Hall of Truth before the great god Osiris and the Forty-Two Judges and, in the weighing of the heart, if one's life on earth was found worthy, that soul passed on to the paradise of the Field of Reeds. The soul was rowed with others who had also been justified across Lily Lake (also known as The Lake of Flowers) to a land where one regained all which had been thought lost. There one would find one's home, just as one had left it, and any loved ones who had passed on earlier. Every detail one enjoyed during one's earthly travel, right down to one's favorite tree or most loved pet, would greet the soul upon arrival. There was food and beer, gatherings with friends and family, and one could pursue whatever hobbies one had enjoyed in life. All the best Provenance: Luxor, Colour: Beige/Tan, Type: Statues, Material: Stone
