Icon for Netjer
« on: June 24, 2018, 10:58:29 pm »
I'm wondering what is everyone's favorite imagery for Netjer? I'd like to get a picture printed and framed to be the focal point of my senut shrine, but I'm having a hard time finding something that is a good representation of Netjer.

Just use an Ankh it's the symbol of the life the Netjeru gave us

Ahh, I don't want to use an Ankh for the shrine. I should have specified.

I do not use anything to represent Netjer, but I like to leave a representation of Ma'at, an image of her or an Ib (heart). Netjer is to me, without description, he is... Everything. I, the air I breathe, the ground that I tread, my sanctuary that is also Ptah, my lineage that is in my sanctuary, this is for me the greater representation of him. But I use the Senut candle that stands in the middle of the sanctuary to represent, "this is Netjer." Even because there is no ancient representation of it.
It helps?

Envisioning my "perfect Senut shrine," I would have an image or plaque of an ankh on the center of the wall, with a statue of Ma'at beneath it. Gods of the Year statues (or paintings, or whatever) to either side, and one candle on each side after that. Fill with imagery and icons of your lineup as you like. ^^;

You could use an image of the Horus-falcon on a standard (G7). This is an expression and determinative of “divinity” as applies to Netjer. If that’s a bit too spartan, you could counterbalance it with a cobra (I12) to refer specifically to female divinities, leaving the hawk to refer to male divinities. There’s the “Netjer”-flag too (R8), either alone or tripled to be plural, but I think falcons and cobras are more personable.

When I was in the beginners class I made a Ma'at feather out of clay, and that's my favorite image to represent Netjer as a whole because it's the symbol of what we're striving for, to do and be in Ma'at. <3

I made each Netjer in my lineup a small papyrus and linen square with their hieroglyphs and some symbols for Them.
