The irony of a simple factor









A poor worker went to the pharmacy and said to the pharmacist: Do you have a cement ointment and the pharmacist laughed at the man? Yes, we have an ointment for the stone and iron. Do you want excellent quality imported or local quality made in the country? The man said to him. The man raised his hands in front of the pharmacist and told him that I am a worker working in the architecture and suspended the cement in my hand as you see and I can not touch the face of my little girl until I play with her.

Because I am afraid of the impact of cement in my hands, they do not sleep until I hug her and kiss her and give her happiness and motivate her to success and study she was in great distress because of her rich colleagues and their ability to wear the most expensive clothes but after returning from work and sit with it was forget everything and come back Her beautiful smile, please if the excellent quality you say on it removes this cement from my hands I give it at any price. 




At that moment the pharmacist froze and froze his sarcastic laughs and the pharmacist's opinion of himself is small and also recalls how he dealt with his children with extreme and cruel and did not embrace his children long ago and no longer pamper them and never smiled at them, smiled to the worker and gave him an ointment that removes what is in his hands cracks and did not take him a price And then said the pharmacist to the worker has taught me a lesson other than me and made me miss my children and made me know that poverty is the poverty of hearts and not poverty of money.

Amon




The worship of Amun (-Re and security  later) and religion associated Theologiat of the
 most complex of ancient Egypt. The pictures in the highest security  hidden god Ra as his name means, but it was not a theological god alone, hidden, even though his name is also a hidden form can not be realized. In other words, the ambiguity surrounding Amun is caused by the absolute perfection, and in this it is different from all other Egyptian gods. His Holiness was important so that it remained separate from the universe creature. Was associated with air and this was the hidden force, which facilitated his promotion as God higher.

Mark Amon creating for himself, (except that the school Hermopolis (Ashmunein \ Hmon \ Khmno) theological older was considered one of the gods in Alojdod, Althamon known name), as was his ability to regenerate and re-create itself, which accounted for his ability to transform into a snake and put his skin, and with the This has been different from the creation, separate and independent of him.

Ptouhdh with Ra, the sun, reflected the creation of Amon, and this collection of security  Ra in the same divine extremes: it is as Amun was a mysterious and hidden and separate from the world, and as Ra was a clear and visible and giving of daily life. The same logic was its association with Pmaat, the Egyptian concept of justice and balance in the universe.

Facilitated by the nature of the gods Amun, the hidden associate with the other. Associated with Amun in Thebes at the outset Bmonto, the old god, and then came to associate excelled, and was followed by another associate gods, he knew the names of Ra   security and the security of Atom   Ra Montu-Ra and security   Hrakhca, Maine  security. Here, it must be noted that Amon was not integrated into other gods to create a new god, but he was united for the ability to associate with the divine.

At the height of the worship of Amun -  Ra, close to many of the Egyptian religion as a monotheistic religion, where he became gods other peak of his ability, or manifestations of him. In short he became the only god and the top.

His wife was sometimes called Lamont, feminine version of Amun, but often it was known by name and death, and had a top human being wearing the double crown of Ugean tribal and sea, and their son Khonsu is, the moon. Together formed the triad of Thebes.

Some went to the Amon was a god of relatively recent in ancient Egyptian religion, as the worship in Thebes - where the oldest temples - have not been documented only from the Eleventh Dynasty, but is in fact found mentioned in the embedded-Ahram, which was attributed to the reign of people, the latter in Fifth Dynasty, which is shown as a symbol of creative power, consistent with its role in the gods of Hermopolis Thamon, giving greater forward presence.

Likely that the worship of Amun began in Hermopolis, or that he at first was a god of Thebes locally when she was still the town is of great importance.





Rise


When the family emerged from the territory of the eleventh Herrmontis (Armant), or perhaps of the same good, lavished on the Temple of Karnak, statues and gifts. When you enable Dynasty XVII of the expulsion of the Hyksos Piankhy, it has become to Amun, the god of the capital property, like as a great protector of Egypt.

When carrying the kings of the Eighteenth Dynasty weapons outside the Egyptian border, known up to that time in the military campaigns successful on Syria, Nubia and Libya, the Amon god, a national of Egypt, known universally, Tamsa light of all other gods and installed its place above the gods of foreign countries, Fshaat worship in Nubia and Libya, which was a common Egyptian culture there. Rates of all the kings of Egypt and their achievements and their victories Omjadehm to Amun and showered gifts and wealth and the spoils on the temples. Solution at this time the warrior god Amon place as God Montu chairman of the city of Thebes, and became king of the gods.

Became the god Amun in Nubia Dynasty twenty-fifth, as was the priests of Amon in the Kingdom of Blana (Nabbatea) and Marwa in control of all affairs of state, King Vijtaron and direct his military campaigns, and sometimes even Argmonh to commit suicide as mentioned Diodorjs Sicilian. This lasted until the third century BC, when the Erkaman (Arkamane Ergamenes) slaughter of the priests.

Keep pace with the rise to the rank of the god Amun, national and global levels with the increasing importance of Thebes. This rise accelerated with the assumption of security  erased first (August Sanپ   Ra) ruling in Thebes and founded the Twelfth Dynasty, and reached its peak in the era of the modern state when he was celebrated in the festival Oپt. Accompanied by the name hinted security  founder of the family name of the god Amun and carried after him three of his successors, the kings also took Taibion ​​Many of the Middle Kingdom the same name later.

In ritual festival Oپt, was carrying a statue of Amun of Karnak on the boat to Thebes (Luxor) celebrated his marriage to the death as Kamut  F Khonsu they'll have to complete the triad of Thebes, which was in this role is the ability of creation.

Amon enjoyed great popularity among the people where he was called out Bnasir the poor, and it protects the weak from the strong and the protector of justice, and had to ask for help from Amon to prove purity or to purify himself of his sins first.

Amon was the link of ownership means that the Egyptian king derives his power from him as a son like what happened when I found Queen Hatshepsut (Maat  Kara) which have a helper, and Vazmth itself to be announced as his daughter, and a girl her temple in Deir el-Bahari in his name. According to the official theology of the modern state in the security of  Ra is the one who ruled Egypt from the King, and shows his will through his priests. But with the increasing importance of the increased power of the god and his priests gain control grip on the political scene, and arrived to the case that ruled Egypt from the strain of the Kings are the priests of the family-first century.

Amon

Images of Amun in the form of human figures, wearing a crown out of it are two forms are parallel, rectangular and circular party, may represent Resthan superpowers of the tail of the falcon god Almstaartan Maine. There are two common types of shot: In one of them depicted sitting on a throne, and the other depicts the development of the penis erect (ithyphallic) holding a whip in his hand, just as images of God Min. It is likely that this latter is filming its original form which was known as the god of fertility, which leads in front of the King's ceremonial rituals to cultivate the land or harvest yield.

During the Eighteenth Dynasty Egyptian goose was considered (chenalopex) Ktgesd sacred to Amon, but he was represented as a ram, and more abundant wool of centuries brackets who came to be known centuries of Amun in his name and found a representative in this way since the days of Amenhotep III. (In turn linked to the type of domestic rams-haired old sender and the centuries straight brominated god Khnum). And also appeared in human form with a frog, a representative for his role in Alojdod.

Sometimes the name of the sun god Amun-Ra match the name of the security of  Ra, especially when he was referred to as the "king of the gods" from the eighteenth dynasty, where the rule of the heavens in the cosmology of the Egyptian god Ra. When the transfer Omnman the first capital to Atjtawi (at the edge of the Delta; yet to be discovered and can be Liszt) has increased the importance of this pairing excelled politically and theologically, which was made perfect sense for a god superior Kamon, who was nicknamed also "King of the mitral Two Lands."

Ages in Greek was Amon -  Ra sometimes depicts a bearded man's head and the body of a scarab and falcon wings and feet and claws of a lion, with a view to bring many different qualities of it







Decline

Beginning of the reign of Thutmose IV of the Eighteenth Dynasty in the time I reached the cult of Amun to its height, began to reverence an abstract image of the sun is in the Aten, to appear. Until Ahmose, founder of the family found a pattern Imitdha Aten when he shines. Arrived to the worship of Aten apogee when the campus of King Amenhotep IV, who became King Akhenaten common worship of Amun. Failure of Akhenaten to impose the worship of the god Aten on the people and failed to eliminate the influence of the priests of Amun, powerful, returned Religion Ancient to what it was after his death and destroyed the effects and the temples of Aten and abandoned his capital, sister  Manhattan (Amarna) to good again at the hands of his successor Tut  - Ankh  - security. In the period following the return of the worship of Amun, wrote hymns and prayers to the security -  Ra almost monotheistic in its formulation and its meaning.

After the demise of the Twentieth Dynasty shift the center of gravity for good and the authority of Amun began to shows signs of abating. Kings tried to priests in the family, the twenty-first save prestige of Amon as they can, and with the family to the capital of the twenty-second was in the north, but the priests of Amon continued to play an important role in the antique capital of Thebes.

Consistently weak governance has increased the division between Upper and sea, and from that time was the veneration of the Nubian kings of Amun worship which prevailed in their own land, which is a long time to save a good position, the capital of their king Fjaloha despite the fact that their wealth and influence of cultural influence were not enough.

Amon was the god of good even in the time of degradation, in addition to that he was God, the most important for a number of areas of the Delta and the temples of many small town of prestige in Middle Egypt to Canoپs on the Mediterranean Sea (near Abu Qir); as it was represented to some extent national aspirations of local of Upper Egypt in the face of Middle Egypt and the Delta

Topics: Sculpture


Statues were among the most important features of Egyptian arts. A statue had an essential function in the tomb throughout Pharaonic times, which was to enable the spirit to identify the features of the deceased person so that it could find him in the hereafter. Throughout the Old, Intermediate, and New Kingdoms, the art of sculpture flourished and produced a number of statues of different types. Egyptians used the size of their sculptures to show the social order. The pharaoh was larger than life-size, sometimes weighing hundreds of tons. Scribes and court officials were life-size, and servants and peasants, although made with high precision, were small, usually less than 50 centimeters. These statues exhibited the servant in various attitudes of working. Also, the shawabti statues, a few centimeters high, were like servants that are called by the master in the hereafter to perform the tasks he needs. There were 365 such shawabti statues, representing the days of the year.

A basic feature of Egyptian sculpture was the Pharaonic Needles, made through utilizing high architectural technology, as the needle was cut from a single stone block. Needles were among the most prominent elements of ancient architecture, usually located on both sides of entrances to temples. Columns had a special status in Egyptian temples in the Pharaonic and Greek eras. A column consists of three parts: the base, body, and crown. Columns were either square or rounded. Crowns took different shapes similar to flowers and plants, such as the palm tree and the lotus plant. A common shape was that of a woven basket with an ornamental plant shape or grape vines inside.

In the Greco-Roman era, Romans discovered many types of marble in the Red Sea mountains, which they used extensively in sculpture and construction. Movement and dress folds became evident in sculptural style. Several statues, particularly of kings and gods, have been found apart from their heads. A special type of sculpture emerged during that era, known as terracotta, which are small statues made of pottery with heights ranging between 5 and 20 centimeters. Large numbers of statues were found representing animals, such as a vulture, cat, hippopotamus, monkey, bull, lion, and dog, as well as human figures.

The Coptic culture only focused on two particular types of sculpture. The first type is the tombstone, which is a plate of limestone whose upper part is often shaped like a triangle with drawings. The tombstone bears the portrait of the deceased and date of death. The second type of sculpture is the cornice, which is a carved decorative element above or below walls and used for decoration of churches and abbeys. They usually had plant or animal ornamentations and in special cases, human figures. Since the sixth century AD, the cross appeared in the middle.

Sculpture played a small role in Islamic culture, since Islam rejected all aspects of the previous pagan religions. Therefore, only a few statues from that time period were found; these were not carved, but made out of templates. Most of these small statues were of small animals, such as a rabbit or gazelle.

Coffin of Sepi


Egyptian priests compiled funerary and ritual texts to assist the deceased during the

journey in the underworld.

The priests intended to provide the deceased with information about the journey of the sun and about the creatures and demons living in the underworld.

These texts further instructed the deceased on how to overcome all the difficulties and obstacles that would endanger the journey through the underworld. By overcoming these obstacles the deceased could achieve resurrection.

In the Old Kingdom, the so-called pyramid texts were written on the walls of the burial chambers in the pyramids. These texts were later developed into the "Coffin Texts" during the Middle Kingdom and were enhanced with illustrations of the underworld and the offering items. The coffin of Sepi provides an example of these texts.

In the New Kingdom, the Book of the Dead, another major development, portrayed the same ideas regarding the hereafter
