Egyptian Proverb

"THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS WITHIN YOU; AND HE WHO KNOWS HIMSELF WILL FIND IT."

The Egyptian people firmly believed that there was life after death, a life much better than the earthly life; but in order to enjoy that second chance, the bodies must remain intact.How did they get it? To prevent the corpses from becoming rotten, they embalmed them. This means they were emptied, dried and wrapped with bandages. Once the process was over, the mummies were buried in tombs with food and some of their belongings (combs, cups…) to use in the beyond.

WHAT DID THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS BELIEVE IN?

The pyramid was a structure designed for the pharaoh to rest forever safe from tomb robbers and inclement weather.

WHAT WERE THEY FOR?

The pyramid is only the visible part. Underneath it is the most important part: The sealed chamber of Pharaoh. It is there, under meters of land, where the mummy is preserved, inside a sarcophagus, next to the objects to take to the other life.

HOW ARE THEY MADE?

The pyramids are the incredible constructions in which the pharaoh was buried after his death. Yes, they are gigantic tombs that were raised thanks to the work done by thousands and thousands of workers from all over Egypt.

Most Egyptians lived in the countryside but were not the owners of the products they cultivated or of the cattle, since this belonged to kings or pharaohs, as they were called in Ancient Egypt, and also to the nobles.

The art was mostly religious, destined to be part and decorate temples and tombs. Sculptors and painters were considered craftsmen (not artists like today), so they just did what was in charge of them. For hundreds of years art remained unaltered, almost unchanged.
