This colorful array of images shows many important symbols from
Ancient Egypt. On the top are eyes representing the moon and sun.
The left eye is that of Horus (Wedjat) that got knocked out when he
was in battle with his Uncle Seth. However, because Hathor was able
to restore it, it now has a connection with wholeness and
restoration. Horus right eye was thus considered to be the sun. In
between the eyes is the shen ring. This never-ending circle was the
symbol for eternity. Below that is a cup and three wavy lines
representing water. The two people in the scene are husband and
wife. The wife is presenting her husband with two necklaces. The
one on the left has the signs-nefer (love, goodness and beauty),
Djed pillar (stability) and the Knot of Isis (life and welfare).
The necklace on the right is a scarab, which is associated with the
sun god and with regeneration and rebirth. Above the rope of the
scarab are lotus flowers, which represent rebirth and creation.
With these symbols the man will be protected from harm and is being
brought closer to the favor of the gods. The size of this papyrus
painting is approximately 14" by 17 1/2".
