Flowers for my altar
« on: January 03, 2022, 02:39:35 am »
Em hotep my friends !

I would like to make my altar again on my new appartment (i have a little place, not I really I want this place, but I have no choice), but with artificial flowers dating from the Pharaonic period...

Only, apart from the lotus flowers and papyrus, I can't really find any informations...

Do you have any ideas please ?

Thanks a lot <3

Em hotep!

Flowers were very important to the ancient Egyptians and it is a fun rabbit hole to fall into reading about it. Here are some of the flowers/plants that were native to AE.

“ Cornflowers, Daisies, Water Lily, Jasmine, Myrtle, Roses, Mandrakes, Lynchpins, Ivy, Celosia, Narcissus, Mignonettes, Poppies, Lotus, Papyrus, Amber, Pomegranate and Blackberry.”

I think in modern day you should be able to easily acquire daisies and myrtle branches. If you have local fruit trees or bushes you might be able to find blackberry flowers. Also, though not native, apples were also around in ancient Egypt.
