I’m honored to have been your muse for this project! Everything about this is so me! Love your way of communicating by your compelling #hieroglyphs and dynamic color pallet. Keep up the great work my sister!👽👁👽 #repost ・・・ Work In Progress. The symbols seen in my work are inspired by Egyptian hieroglyphs and West African Adinkra symbols.  I paint them around my subjects to form a protective and meditative space. I am interested in exploring a deep and spiritual form of communication. #nicholewashingtonart  much 💕💕 to @nikkiwoods305 for being my muse. 🔮
Spent the day on the West Bank of the Nile. Visited the Colossus of Memnon, tombs in the Valley Of The Kings, explored Hatshepsut’s Temple, and ended the day seeing Deir al-Medina (workers tombs). Successful first day in Luxor!
Let me introduce you to my favorite Deity in all of Ancient Egypt, His name was Thoth, pronounced (Ja-Ho-Tay). If you have not realized by now, I am a sucker for a good mystery, hence why Thoth has always peeked my interest. He first appears in the time line of Pre-Dynastic Egypt with the head of an Ibis and lives long before Osiris and Isis, he was life partners with Ma'at, The Deity of Truth and Justice. History tells us that Thoth's main duty was "upkeep" of the entire Universe! While maintaining order of all existence, he made the time to bring magic, science, mathematics, & written language to the Pre-Dynastic people of Egypt. Theorists have drawn similarities in ancient history and have stated that its possible that Thoth was present in the city of Atlantis. They have also stated that the Feathered Serpent of MesoAmerica could be Thoth as well, considering the Serpent brought the same knowledge to MesoAmerica that Thoth brought to Egyptians. Regardless of what you believe about Thoth, I'm sure plenty has been lost in translation. Who is your favorite Deity of Ancient Egypt? #mikebrownmediagroup #mbm #egypt #ancientegypt #egyptology #thoth #templeofseti #abydos #hieroglyphs #upperegypt #thebes #luxor #photography #photographer #explorer #historian #worldtraveler #wanderlust #picoftheday #pic #travelblog #travel #astronomy #astrology #archaeology #anthropology #architecture #mystery #canon #gopro

Welcome to one of the most colorful and beautiful Temples still standing in Egypt today, The Temple of Hathor at Dendera. Pictured here you are seeing the immensity of the Large Hypostle Hall and its columns that are topped with the head of Hathor. This site has many Temples and a Sacred Lake that are all enclosed by a large mud brick wall. The Temple of Hathor being the oldest and largest, its original ceiling is just now being cleaned for the first time since the Coptic Christians destroyed it with soot from burning fires inside roughly 1500 years ago. The Coptic Christian's can also be thanked for defacing original carvings of any Egyptian Deity they thought might lead Christians astray. The newly cleaned ceiling has revealed the original paint and story the Egyptians left us many millennia ago. Theorists & Egyptologists agree that the ceiling is telling a story of ancient astronomy and astrology. Much more to come in the next few posts about this site. #mikebrownmediagroup #mbm #egypt #ancientegypt #egyptology #thoth #templeofseti #abydos #hieroglyphs #upperegypt #thebes #luxor #photography #photographer #explorer #historian #worldtraveler #wanderlust #picoftheday #pic #travelblog #travel #astronomy #astrology #archaeology #anthropology #architecture #mystery #canon #gopro
The Ancient Egyptian Dwarf Deity known as Bes has always peeked my interest. He has been given credit for everything from "The God of War" to "The God of Fertility and Child Birth". He was said to have always shown an extra concern for women and children. For many years Egyptologists debated whether Bes dated to Middle Kingdom or New Kingdom, turns out, he pre-dates Pre-Dynastic Egypt in Nile Valley "Cult worship". It is still debated today where Bes originated from, theorists have stated Nubia, Somalia, and even outer space are all options on the table. Bes's name can be found as far North as Syria, so we know at one point in time his name was very wide spread. What I find intriguing, is Pre-Dynastic Deities were typically depicted as human bodies with animal heads, in my opinion Bes is the anomaly of Pre Dynastic Egytpian Deities. #mikebrownmediagroup #mbm #egypt #ancientegypt #egyptology #bes #dendera  #hieroglyphs #upperegypt #thebes #luxor #photography #photographer #explorer #historian #worldtraveler #wanderlust #picoftheday #pic #travelblog #travel #astronomy #astrology #archaeology #anthropology #architecture #mystery #canon #gopro
Pictured here I am ascending the infamous staircase located inside the Temple of Hathor at Dendera. I could focus on the detail of the carving on this black granite, considering not one person on planet earth has ever been able to explain how the Egyptians carved granite. But today I would like to focus my energy on the granite staircase. Over the years scholars and egyptologists have attempted to explain the erosion of granite in the middle of the staircase. While it has been accepted in egyptology that this is simple "wear and tear" of 3,400 years of foot traffic, geologists have been less convinced of this notion, stating that something of extreme temperatures such as molten lava is the only thing that could have caused this erosion. They study the flow patterns and see that simple foot traffic would not cause this style of erosion. What are your thoughts? #egypt #ancientegypt #egyptology #hathor #dendera #denderabulb #hieroglyphs #upperegypt #thebes #luxor #photography #photographer #explorer #historian #worldtraveler #wanderlust #picoftheday #pic #travelblog #travel #astronomy #astrology #archaeology #anthropology #architecture #mystery #canon #gopro
Here we are looking at yet another highly debated relief that can be found in the lower crypt area of the Temple of Hathor at Dendera. Egyptologists see this as symbolism, the lotus flower and it's essence it gives off, with the snake of fertility spawning from within, and the Djed pillar (Osiris's Backbone) holding it all up which symbolizes stability. Then there are theorists who see something entirely different, they do not see symbolism at all, they see ancient lost technology. It was never answered how the Egyptians got light into the darkest depths inside their temples and tombs. They see not a lotus flower, essence, & snake, but they see a housing, bulb, & filament. It has also been pointed out that it almost appears to be a power cord of sorts running along the floor of the relief, and plugs into a square structure that provides "stability". Which do you see? Symbology or Technology? #mikebrownmediagroup #mbm #egypt #ancientegypt #egyptology #hathor #dendera #denderabulb #hieroglyphs #upperegypt #thebes #luxor #photography #photographer #explorer #historian #worldtraveler #wanderlust #picoftheday #pic #travelblog #travel #astronomy #astrology #archaeology #anthropology #architecture #mystery #canon #gopro
Welcome to the Giza Plateau, home of the Sphinx. While modern Egyptology dates the Sphinx to 4,500 years old, there are VERY compelling theories that argue this notion. Many theorists have pointed out, that there is perfect symmetry found in the megalithic marvel, except for its head, which is approximately 30% too small for the body. Which has led to two main theories. The first dating the construction to roughly 12,500 years old amd would have originally had the head of Anubis "God of the Underworld" which makes sense being placed at the Giza Necropolis. The second  compelling theory states that this body is without a doubt the body of a lion, and they state that the head would have originally been a lions head representing the constellation of Leo. If this theory we're to be true, it would place original construction around 25,000-35,000 years old. Much more to come about this megalithic mystery. #mikebrownmediagroup #mbm #egypt #ancientegypt #egyptology #sphinx #giza #cairo StoneMasonry #hieroglyphs #photography #photographer #explorer #historian #worldtraveler #wanderlust #picoftheday #pic #travelblog #travel #astronomy #astrology #archaeology #anthropology #architecture #mystery #canon #gopro
Welcome to the Saqqara Necropolis, home of the Step Pyramid of Djoser. This pyramid is believed to be constructed 4,700 years ago by Imotep for King Djoser of the 3rd Dynasty. It is also believed this is the first pyramid ever built by ancient Egyptians. Built of mud bricks, its base is roughly 400 feet and it's 200 feet in height. I find it very interesting that Egyptology states that the Great Pyrmaid of Giza was built just 80 years later. While this pyramid is an incredible architectural marvel today, it is childsplay when compared to the quarry and construction process it would have taken at Giza. It is WILD to think about how much of Saqqara has never been excavated. #mikebrownmediagroup #mbm .#Egypt #ancientegypt #egyptology #saqqara #saqarah #djoser #necropolis #stonemasonry #hieroglyphs #photography #photographer #explorer #historian #worldtraveler #wanderlust #picoftheday #pic #travelblog #travel #astronomy #astrology #archaeology #anthropology #architecture #mystery #canon #gopro
Sehel Island’s rock-inscriptions are an absolute marvel! The Egyptians were fully aware of the First Cataract’s dangers.  They left prayers asking for protection on journeys or to give thanks for safe returns to the Elephantine triad: Khnum, Satet and Anuket.  These particular ones were carved by Pharaoh Menkaura to the inundation goddess Anuket in the 4th Dynasty, Old Kingdom. Photo by me @egyptologydaily . . Les roches taillées avec inscriptions à l’île de Sehel sont merveilleuses ! Les Égyptiens prenaient bien conscience des risques de traverser la première cataracte. C’est la raison pour laquelle ils ont inscrit les prières de protection avant ou de remercier après un voyage aux dieux éléphantines : Khnum, Satis et Anukis. Celles-ci étaient inscrites par le pharaon Menkaourê (Mykérinos) à Anukis, la déesse de l’inondation, pendant la IVe dynastie et l’Ancien Empire. . . #egyptology #archaeology #arthistory #hieroglyphs #ancientegypt  #anthropology #aswan #egypt #misr #egipto #égypte #art #arte #architecture #travel #viaje #religion #pharaoh #egiptologia #arqueologia #sculpture #ancientegypt #egyptportrayal #temple #فن #egyptianart #arte #🇪🇬 #علمم_مصريات #escultura #égyptologie #hieroglyphs

Was hoping for infinite star lit sky 🌌(would have made this shot even more brilliant) but instead I got ONE! ☝️ or it might be a planet 🤷🏻‍♂️.. regardless, this is one of my favorite shots in The Temple of Luxor.  #luxor #egypt #globetrotter #travelphotography #wanderlust #africa #templeofluxor #ramses #ancienttemoles #temples #landmarks #landofpharos #travel #statues #ancientsites #archeology #egyptians #oldestcivilizations #ancientegypt #ancienttemple #ancienthistory #thisisegypt #egypt2018 #onthenileblue #hieroglyphs #ramses
The goddess Isis often wears a hieroglyph on her head--a throne--that also writes her name in ancient Egyptian: Is.t.  In other uses, the throne has the phonetic value "st" as it did in the last post.  Isis' hieroglyphic crown is here illustrated with two Ptolemaic sculptures (ca. 332 - 30 BCE) in @metmuseum that illustrate two of the goddesses' significant roles: as mourner of her slain husband Osiris (whose name in ancient Egyptian, Wsir, is also written with the throne sign - he will be the topic of the next post) and mother of Horus, cosmic deity and divine embodiment of kingship.  Isis was also the "great magician," whose spells not only protected her son Horus (providing a template for spells against snakes and scorpions in the ancient Egyptian grimoire), but were also effective against the chaos serpent Apep.  Swipe again for an image of Isis and the Elder Magician at the prow of Re's bark in the seventh hour of the Book of the Hidden Chamber (commonly known as the Book of Amduat). The painted image is from the tomb of Thutmose III in the Valley of the Kings, and although Isis does not wear the throne, the st-throne, but you can see the throne and t-loaf written above her head.  That's a wonderful upshot of reading hieroglyphs: you can figure out exactly who's who in an ancient Egyptian scene! . #hieroglyphs #hieroglyphic #hieroglyph #hieroglyphics #ancientegypt #egypt #egyptian #egyptologist #egyptology #arthistory #ancienthistory #egyptianart #calligraphic #arthistorian  #historyofreligion #ancientreligion #ancientmythology #egyptiangoddess #osiris #valleyofthekings #amduat
