The huge Temple of Karnak complex in Luxor was one of ancient Egypt's grandest and most ambitious building projects. Its multiple temple buildings are monuments to a history-book roll call of pharaohs who all wanted to stamp their seal on their kingdom's most revered religious sanctuary. This was the house of the gods, and its glories were to be feted by all; its sanctity remembered every year in the ancient Egyptian's Festival of Opet when the statues of Amun, Mut, and Khonsu were paraded out of Karnak to Luxor Temple. Today, the awesome wonder that the ancients must have felt when first entering this complex of colossal statues and staggering columns still remains for the travelers who flock here. The Pharaonic kingdoms may be long gone, but their power lives on in this triumphant testament of stone.

"Anubis is associated with the mummification and protection of the dead for their journeys through Denver International Airport to the afterlife. He is usually portrayed as being half human and half jackal, and holding a metal detector in his hand ... Anubis is employed by the Department of Homeland Security to examine the hearts of all travellers to make sure they have not exceeded the weight limit for psychological baggage ... He is also shown frisking mummies and confiscating firearms and other contraband. It doesn't take much to tip the scales in favour of a dead body cavity search or an afterlifetime travel ban." - Stephen Moles, The Most Wretched Thing Imaginable or, Beneath the Burnt Umbrella
Hatshepsut, one of the first female pharaohs of Egypt, was a Spitfire Girl. During her 20+ year reign, she made roads, obelisks, and a mortuary temple on the bank of the Nile. Her accomplishments were successfully erased from history until excavators found all her destroyed sculptures in front of her temple. Most of the statues of her have a male body and the classic pharaoh beard, kilt, and headdress.
“Some of the smartest dummies can't read the language of Egyptian mummies
Plant a flag on the moon and can't find food for the starving tummies
Pay no mind to the youths 'cause it's not like the future depends on it
But save the animals in the zoo 'cause the chimpanzee them make big money
This is how the media pillages, on TV the picture is savages in villages
And the scientist still can't explain the pyramids
Evangelists making a living on the videos of ribs of the little kids
Stereotyping the image of the images and this is what the image is
You buy khaki pants and all of a sudden you say a Indiana Jones
And thief out gold and thief out the scrolls and even the buried bones
Some of the worst paparazzi's I've ever seen and I ever known
Put the worst on display so the world can see and that's all they will ever show
So the ones in the West will never move east and feel they could be at home
Get tricked by the Beast but where them gon' flee when the monster is fully grown?
Solomonic linage where them can't defeat and them could never clone
My spiritual DNA that print in my soul and I will forever own, Lord”

It’s been a great day! I learned some things I didn’t know about the ancient Egyptians at #thebroomclosetmemphis in Emily’s Cairo to Memphis workshop. I’ve ALWAYS LOVED ancient Egyptian mythology and the culture as a whole. As some may know I’m a history buff and apart from the Norse, I’m also HEAVILY into ancient Egyptian things. 😁I feel really bad that I accidentally disrespected Ma’at’s statue. She was so pretty that I just had to touch her, so I’ll be figuring out something to apologize to the goddess personally since I don’t want to incur the wrath of a goddess of another pantheon. 😭 Anyways, that workshop was great and can’t wait for another fun one to attend! I also got my acceptance letter from #theasatrucommunity today! I’ve been waiting for about four weeks now and am SO excited I was accepted. This organization is pretty progressive and part of Declaration 127. Declaration 127 is the call to arms for Heathens to take back our symbols and iconography from the white supremacists who has misappropriated these symbols, such as Othala and other runes, into their racist ideology. In the future, once I’ve learned a lot more and make connections with Heathens locally, I want to train to become a gythja, pretty much a priestess of the Norse pantheon. ❤️ We don’t have much of a Heathen population but I’d like to bring them together so we can talk about the deities and so forth. There’s several wonderful pagan groups already, but it’d be cool to gather the few Heathens. 😊 All in all, this has become a well spent day! #heathen#theasatrucommunity#shieldwall#declaration127#pagan#maat#egyptiangoddess#egyptian#egypt#ancientegypt#thebroomclosetmemphis#ritual#witchythings#wine#cake#statues#anubis#bast
