An Old Kingdom Tomb has been found at Saqqara. It belongs to a priest named Wahtye. The pics are amazing!

A cartouche in the pics is for Neferirkare II.

In my case, I have no idea what name I'd want - as long as it doesn't translate to something like 'Annoys the Gods'.  ;) I have a hard enough time coming up with online nicks - they tend to be some variation of 'Capricorn' :D

Em hotep, Shefytbast. :)

so as the life-giving (not wrathful) aspect of the sun, you could certainly interpret it as the pacified Eye of Ra.

It would explain why so many of them have the udjat AND the scarab, though I've seen one with all three!  :o

I did come across that particular statue in my search. I also like the ones on display in the Louvre. Sadly, my own is not a museum replica - I'm pretty sure the hieroglyphs around the base  are nonsense as the direction they face changes willy nilly.  :P

Thank you!

Em hotep:

I have a question for Bast kids and other enthusiasts:

The seated cat Bast statues are often depicted with amulets. So far I've seen three: Eye of Ra (udjat), Uraeus, and Scarab beetle (winged or not). The first two are obviously related to Bast as an Eye of Ra, but as Khepri is the dawn (usually) would that relate to the Eye as the one who has been pacified/returned? Something completely different?

I'm curious because my Bast figurine has just the scarab (no wings).

EDIT: Historical and UPG info both welcome. :)

But from the one, by studying the ancient images, we can know Set WAS NOT considered "evil" by the ancients, during the strongest dynasties, and even during some areas in the Greco-Roman era

What amazing images! I haven't seen any of them before! <3

Ooooh! <3  I would love to read an English translation. (Barring that, I can always try babelfish or google translate. ;))

Not yet, but it comes from a dedication at Abu Simbel:

Abu Simbel, Lesser Temple Facade: 2 large statues of Nefertari
Dedications on Buttresses
On the Two Southernmost Buttresses:
A temple of great and Mighty monuments, for the Great Royal Wife Nefertari Meryetmut, for whose sake the (very) sun does shine, given life and beloved;

I think registration is now closed for the Nov 12 class. The next one is in Feb or Mar, then in June after that. However, he can still submit it (with a note if he wants to be in the Nov 12 class) and see what they say.

Em hotep. :)
