Doors To Eternity

I have always wondered how the eternity will be? Will I have as colorful home as I have now where my soul will go to? Will I have the company of people I loved in this life? Will food and wines be part of my eternity? Egyptians resolved these questions when they were alive. As soon Pharaohs were crowned the work for the home of their eternity started, of course that was a privilege for the ruling class, as they were considered the extension of God on Earth.

This past week, I visited the interactive exhibition of Pharaoh Ramses II and his gold at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. The exhibition was excellent and the interactive show was incredibly interesting as if I was in the streets of Thebes, on the Nile and inside the Pyramids among the Egyptians breathing their culture and lifestyle of millennia ago.

Ramses II built an impressive mortuary temple in Thebes to safeguard his soul.

Drawings and colors of the Temple’s ceiling as well as murals and tombs decorative paintings have been recreated inside the museum.

The Temple Façade (below) is oriented to face the rising sun. Rays illuminate the four colossal statues of Ramses II, the smaller sculpture of Nefertari, his wife, the statue of Isitnofret, his second wife and their children. As the sun moves in, floods the temple interior with light.

Ramses II was a prolific man, he created 100 children with 8 wives.

The photograph below is the entry excavated in the pyramid built for Ramses II.

The Pharaohs’ tomb builders decorated walls and ceilings with painted scenes, they envisioned blue skies with stars and inserted symbols of magic spells from the Egyptian Book od Dead.

The dead Pharaoh was buried across the Nile from Thebes in the Valley of the Kings with everything he needed to continue his afterlife as God.

I would love to show the gold collection of the Pharaoh, but this post is about doors, their functions, history and what they hide behind.

Dan Antion offers an opportunity to learn about doors in the world with his Thursday Door Challenge. This is my participation for today’s challenge. Ciao,
