Death, the Ultimate Change

This collage contains images relating to Death in anchient Egypt. Thoth, the ibis headed god of writing, science, and the arbitrator of good and evil, and Anubus, the jackal-headed god, who weighs the heart at death.

It must be as light as a feather in order to proceed to the afterlife. Nut, the sky goddess, whose fingers and toes touch the cardinal points of N, S, E, and W, is seen as a friend and partner of the dead.

The pyramid, of course, is the tomb of the dead Pharaohs and their consorts, dating from 2600 BCE, and symbolizes the descending rays of the sun.
