العقل زينة - The mind is decoration
This one of my favorite Egyptian Proverbs. It means you're mind is what makes you beautiful. We all need to appreciate intelligence more rather then valuing looks. Look inward rather then outward. #tb #ethihadnight #takemetoegypt

Head of an Amarna Princess
Quartzite
.
18th Dynasty, New Kingdom, Reign of king «Akhenaten».
.
Tell El Amarna, Workshop of the sculptor «Thutmose».
.
The identity of this royal woman of Tell el Amarna is uncertain. She is normally considered to be one of the king's daughters, since the bald head could suggest youth, yet the fact is that this head is of an adult woman and has much in common with representations of Nefertiti herself. Indeed the famous bust of Nefertiti also derived from the workshop of Thutmose, and one can certainly see the resemblance between that face and this one. Possibly this statue would have had a headdress of separate material that adorned it during presentation.
.
The neck of this woman extends into a long cylindrical dowel, indicating that the head formed part of a composite statue of which this head was one component, and probably its material, brown quartzite, was one of several. Composite sculpture, not that common in Egypt before this time, was a characteristic of art from the Amarna period. As a method of working, it would have allowed the artisans to use smaller amounts of favored stones, such as quartzite, and it also allowed the statues to be fashioned without the framework of large stone back pillars and without needing to engineer negative space, such as that between arms and bodies, out of a single block of material. The Amarna artists thus were encouraged to work to make images in stone as animated as those in wood, and the lighter weight of composite sculpture supported those efforts.

#lovestory The myth of Isis and Osiris illustrates the power of love and how it can transform us irrevocably. For over three thousand years—before 3000 b.c. to the second century a.d.—Isis was worshiped in Egypt as the mother goddess of the universe. She had two brothers, Osiris and Set. Osiris was responsible for the fertile soil and Set ruled the barren desert.
When they were old enough, the sun god Ra married Isis to Osiris. Isis and Osiris were blissful in their love for each other. No moon or star could outshine their passion. Because they were happy in their union, Isis and Osiris were generous and just. Their days were spent nourishing the world: Isis’s powers combined with Osiris’s brought forth abundant food from the rich Egyptian soil and the fertile Nile. Accordingly, they were adored by many and granted honors greater than their brother Set.
Set observed this. Jealousy ate at his soul, granting him no rest. His regard for his brother soon turned to hate. To be freed of it, he trapped Osiris in a coffin and heaved him into the swirling waters of the Nile.
Griefstricken, Isis transformed herself into a dark bird and flew everywhere looking for her beloved Osiris. Finally she found the coffin embedded inside a tree, which had grown around it over time. Isis hid the coffin from Set. But Set learned all. He stole Osiris from Isis, and cut his brother’s body into fourteen pieces, which he scattered over Egypt.
Isis was undeterred. Strengthened by her devotion to Osiris, she traveled up and down the Nile in a papyrus boat, searching for the lost pieces of her husband’s body. Years passed before she found each and every one. When she did, Isis placed each piece of Osiris next to the other, and joined them with wax and gold. Then, using the power of her love, the goddess brought Osiris back to life for a final embrace. ⬇
