Afterlife among Ancient Egyptians
Egypt is a country that possesses so many wonders and a huge number of mysterious artistic works. There are a large number of stunning monuments created by ancient Egyptians.
Egyptians formulated a remarkably complex set of religious beliefs and funneled vast material resources into the quest for immortality. The temples that they erected for their immortal gods were built from large pieces of stone cut from Arabian Deserts and cliffs of the Libyan and from the same everlasting material they have built countless number of god-king statues and tombs to show their endless world.

While Egyptian civilization underwent many cultural changes over the course of its nearly three-thousand-year history, the pursuit of life after death endured. Egyptian kingship was associated with solar power, which may be understood as an attempt to immortalize the royal office. In ancient Egypt, religion and politics were inextricably linked and by presenting artifacts from preparation for afterlife and the role of gods and goddesses in this journey that the deceased need to take to the afterlife I want to focuses on the understanding of the afterlife in the ancient Egyptian mythology. I think spending some time on these cultural beliefs and showing these ideas in-depth is very practical. I am thinking to divide the exhibition into two sections of “Preparation for the After Life” and “Role of Gods and Goddesses in the afterlife journey” and try to show and emphasis ideas of afterlife and immortality among ancient Egyptian.
