Reviving the Pharaoh

 purification pharaon

Pour le texte en Francais, lisez ici

A very common scene in the temples of Upper Egypt to see the Pharaoh being purified by the gods. We see in the scene the gods pouring water on the king to purify him but what is a little bit strange that what we see in the scene is not water but instead we see the Key of Life Ankh (Symbol of Life in Ancient Egypt). Ancient Egyptians noticed that water is the source of Life and that it always revive everything so when the King will be purified with water, he will relive again.

I'm an Egyptian woman who was charmed and fascinated by the beauty of my beautiful country Egypt and it's rich history, that's why I decided to enter the faculty of tourism and study everything about my amazing country. Later on, I decided to share my passion and love for Egypt with people from all over the world, that's why I decided to work as a tour guide. I also love to write. Writing to me is like holding a brush in my hand and start to paint the thoughts in my hands as words. So here I'm sharing with you my paintings "my words and thoughts" about what I see, feel, like and think about my country. Hope you enjoy your time reading the posts and that you Walk Like an Egyptian ;) :)
