El Templo en Scoop.it! | Kingdom of Divinities- El Reino de Divinidades | Scoop.it
Ana G. Lopez's insight:

 Entraremos al Templo en el antiguo Egipto donde conoceremos los mitos de este maravilloso Imperio; desde las historias de las más famosas deidades, sus representaciones en los jeroglíficos y en las esculturas hasta los templos erectos en honor a estos.

 La razón por la elección de tal extraordinario tema es simple, enriquecer mi conocimiento de este mundo antiguo, el cual desde la niñez ha acaparado mi atención, pero hasta este momento no había tenido la oportunidad de sumergirme y llenarme de tanta información. Mis expectativas las cifro corto como en el largo plazo ya que hay tanto por descubrir, al igual que ser un recurso para aquellos que también les interesa este mundo.

 En fin, les doy la más calidad bienvenida al Templo, les exhorto que caminen por los pasillos, comenten, compartan y descubran…El Reino de Divinidades.

Mixed Representations of Ancient Egyptian Gods

Mixed Representations of Ancient Egyptian Gods | Kingdom of Divinities- El Reino de Divinidades | Scoop.it

The first Egyptian gods were probably thought to be manifested in animals, and so that was the form in which representations of the earliest gods were depicted. However, they soon took on a number of different forms, including human, and inanimate objects. Another form was a mixture, usually with animal heads and human bodies, though this never superseded purely animal forms of the gods, or those with completely human form. This mixed form of animal and human caused an early and passionate rejection of Egyptian religion during the classical period.
