Hippo - Taweret goddes


In the Book of the Dead Taweret, the 'Lady of Magical Protection', was seen as a goddess who guided the dead into the afterlife to help with the rebirth of the souls.
Taweret was believed to be protective of children. She was often shown holding the "sa" hieroglyph of protection or the ankh hieroglyph of life. She was thought to assist women in labour and scare off demons that might harm the mother or child.Egyptians also saw hippo as symbols of rebirth and rejuvenation.

The Eye of Horus /Udjat/

Horus was the falcon-headed solar and sky god from ancient Egypt. He is associated with vitality, health and regeneration. Horus was the son of Osiris and Isis. His right eye was white, and represented the sun, and his left eye was black, and represented the moon.It was a symbol of the power of the God of light, and therefore a popular amulet for protection. On presenting his eye to Osiris, Osiris experienced rebirth.The eye also symbolizes our ability to see with clarity and truthfulness.

Djed Pillar



The Djed Pillar is the oldest symbol and was of great religious significance to the ancient Egyptians. It is the symbol of backbone and body in general. The Djed is represented on two ivory pieces found at Helwan dating to the first dynasty, evidence that the use of this symbol is at least that old.In these early times it is said that Osiris was probably represented by the Djed alone, and that he had no other form. Alan Gardiner describes the Djed as a column imitating a bundle of stalks tied together and ascribes to it the meaning 'be stable' and 'enduring'. Other possible interpretations are that it represents the four supports of the sky combined as one pillar.

the SCARAB BEETLE (kheper)

Appearance: The particular species of beetle represented in the numerous ancient Egyptian amulets and works of art was commonly the large sacred scarab (Scarabaeus sacer). This beetle was famous for his habit of rolling balls of dung along the ground and depositing them in its burrows. The female would lay her eggs in the ball of dung. When they hatched, the larvae would use the ball for food. When the dung was consumed the young beetles would emerge from the hole. Millions of amulets and stamp seals of stone or faience were fashioned in Egypt depicted the scarab beetle.
