Ancient Egyptian Symbols: 50 New Discoveries identifies, for the first time since antiquity, the sources and meanings of 50 ancient Egyptian symbols, including the Eye of Horus, evil god Seth and his strange head, 10 major crowns, and the symbolic foundations of Osirian mythology, the backbone of ancient Egyptian religion for more than 2000 years. These are paradigm-changing discoveries. Most of them are based on detailed examinations of living examples of ancient Egypt’s two sacred flowers – the Blue and the White Waterlilies – and on resurrection texts found in ancient Egyptian tombs. More than 300 detailed illustrations, beautifully presented, make these discoveries easy to understand and appreciate. The book is organized for the general reader and scholar alike.
“Remarkable discoveries that, once seen, are completely obvious” Andrew Weil, MD.
“This truly remarkable publication challenges the world of Egyptology to reassess long-held and clearly incorrect theories about the origin and meaning of so many symbols and representational forms which are fundamental to our understanding of ancient Egypt” Carol Andrews, Egyptologists at the British Museum for 27 years.
“A momentous work of art and deep reservoir of revealed knowledge…seeing what everyone else has seen, but thinking what no one else has” Martine Rothblatt, founder Sirius Radio.
