Egyptian T13



Since my book is called Egyptian Nights I though what better way to highlight it than to use Egyptian gods/godesses? So what follows is dsome of my favorite characters from the Egyptian Pantheon. Which ones did I use in Egyptian Nights? You’ll have to read to find out!



1. Ra 'Sun' Man with hawk head and headdress with a sun disk Ra was the sun god. He was the most important god of the ancient Egyptians.
The ancient Egyptians believed that Ra was swallowed every night by the sky goddess Nut, and was reborn every morning. The ancient Egyptians also believed that he travelled through the underworld at night. In the underworld, Ra appeared as a man with the head of a ram.






















2. Ammut: was an Egyptian demoness. She was known as the 'Eater of Hearts', 'The Devourer' and 'Great of Death' because she was a demoness of punishment. She was a netherworld dweller who waited by the scales of judgement to consume the heads of those who did evil during their lives. She was not worshiped, and was never regarded as a goddess. Instead she embodied creatures that the Egyptians feared, threatening to eat them if they did not follow the principals of Ma'at. She had the head of a crocodile, the body of a leopard and the backside of a hippopotamus - all fierce creatures to the Egyptians. All man-eaters. It's no wonder that she was depicted as one who consumed the unworthy dead!


















3. Hathor 'House of Horus' she had many shapes including: woman with the ears of a cow, a cow, or a woman with a headdress of horns and a sun disk Hathor was a protective goddess. She was also the goddess of love and joy. Hathor was the wife of Horus, and was sometimes thought of as the mother of the pharaoh. Hathor was connected with foreign places and materials. For instance, Hathor was the goddess of the desert and the turquoise mines in the Sinai. A large temple was built to honour Hathor at Dendera.

















4. Isis often appeared as: Woman with headdress in the shape of a throne or A pair of cow horns with a sun disk Isis was a protective goddess. She used powerful magic spells to help people in need.
Isis was the wife of Osiris and the mother of Horus. Since each pharaoh was considered the 'living Horus', Isis was very important. Isis is often shown holding Horus on her lap. Isis is associated with thrones because her lap was the first 'throne' that Horus sat upon. A temple was built to honour Isis at Philae. It is still standing today.



















5. Ma'at : Woman with a feather on her head or a featherMa'at was the goddess of truth, justice and harmony. She was associated with the balance of things on earth. Ma'at was the daughter of the sun god Ra. Pharaohs are frequently shown in wall reliefs making an offering of Ma'at to the gods-showing that they are preserving harmony and justice on earth. The vizier who was in charge of the law courts was known as the 'priest of Ma'at'.

















6. Thoth appeared as an ibis or a baboon: Thoth was the god of writing and knowledge.
The ancient Egyptians believed that Thoth gave them the gift of hieroglyphic writing. Thoth was also connected with the moon. It was not unusual in ancient Egypt for more then one god to take the same form, with similar functions as another god. identified as a wolf. Egyptologists now believe that he was more likely associated with the jackal, though he is often depicted with a gray or white head.























7. Anubis Man with a jackal head A jackal . Anubis was the god of embalming and the dead.
Since jackals were often seen in cemeteries, the ancient Egyptians believed that Anubis watched over the dead. Anubis was the god who helped to embalm Osiris after he was killed by Seth. Thus, Anubis was the god who watched over the process of mummifying people when they died. Priests often wore a mask of Anubis during mummification ceremonies.

















8. Wapwawet: Man with a jackal head Like Anubis, Wepwawet was also a funerary deity, and was one of the earliest of the gods worshipped at Abydos. Early on, Wepwawet's worship paralleled that of Khentyamentiu, but when Osiris absorbed that god's attributes, Anubis filled his funerary role. Wepwawet's name means "the opener of the ways (or Roads)"refers to his role in leading the deceased through the underworld as a protector.



















9. Osiris A mummified man wearing a white cone-like headdress with feathers Osiris was the god of the dead, and ruler of the underworld. Osiris was the brother/husband of Isis, and the brother of Nepthys and Seth. He was also the father of Horus. As well as being a god of the dead, Osiris was a god of resurrection and fertility. In fact, the ancient Egyptians believed that Osiris gave them the gift of barley, one of their most important crops.














10. Nun Man carrying a bark According to an ancient Egyptian creation myth, Nun was the waters of chaos. Nun was the only thing that existed on Earth before there was land. Then, the first land (in the form of a mound) rose out of Nun. Nun was also associated with the chaos that existed at the edges of the universe.











11. Khepri 'He Who is Coming into Being' Appearance: Man with the head of a scarab
Khepri was a god of creation, the movement of the sun, and rebirth. The scarab beetle lays its eggs in a ball of dung. Then, it rolls the ball along the ground until the young beetles are ready to hatch. When the young beetles are ready, they crawl out of the ball. The ancient Egyptians believed that the beetles just appeared from nowhere- as they believed that their creator god had appeared from nowhere. Thus, they thought that the scarab beetle was special.

















12. Horemakhet: ("Horus at the Horizon", meaning the sun) was a symbol of resurrection, linked to the setting sun, which was reborn every morning. He was also a manifestation of the god Re-Horakhte (see this god) and connected to the very old gods Kheper and Atum. He first appeared during the New Kingdom. He was identified with the Great Sphinx at Giza, where he also was venerated in a temple of his own (possibly the only of its kind in Egypt). His very "own" shape was a sphinx (as seen in the picture above). His was very popular during the dynasties 18-19 and called upon as "the good father".












13. Sobek Man with the head of a crocodile and a headdress of feathers and a sun-disk Sobek was a Nile god. Sobek was connected with the Nile, and protected the king. Live crocodiles were kept in pools at temples built to honour Sobek.

Monday, August 6, 2007 Getting to know you

I had to write a bio for my publisher, Respledence http://www.resplendencepublishing.com/ so I figured why not put my bio out here.

Jinger Jackson’s romances are sizzling hot mixes of contemporary world meets ancient civilizations. Her repertoire includes Egyptian, Roman, Greek and Celtic gods, legends and curses. Some of her books also include a bit of elfin lore. Her goal is to deliver sex scenes that make you tingle. If just one person gets ideas from her writing then she’s done her job.

Jinger can be found at her blog, http://jingersnaps.blogspot.com or email her at jingerjackson@hotmail.com

Currently I'm working on an Elf love story. I had been working on Night Magic, but I hit a stone wall and needed something to get me focused and make my muse wake up.

Gotta get back to the voices in my head.

T13

Yeah I don't have one for today. Isn't that pitiful? See I found something I wanted to do but there weren’t 13 of them. I was cruising different blogs and I came across one for http://authorlyncash.blogspot.com/ and I saw something that really was absolutely fabulous. I hope she doesn’t mind that I snagged it. The pictures made me curious and so I hung around. This is an extremely prolific author one who I rather like. So pop over and check her out!

Anyway. Maybe I should have saved this for the thing they call Wordless Wednesday. But I just couldn't resist. I hope you can see the captions on these. These are definite keepers!
