Professionally designed and artfully hand painted, these figurines bring a forgotten world full of untold tales to the palm of your hand. Here’s an intriguing fact: In ancient Egypt, the colour blue was said to reflect the heavens and the universe, which is why many statues and representations of gods, these figurines included, are coloured in such a way.
Similar to Greek and Roman theology, the Egyptians believed in a pantheon of gods that controlled various aspects of the natural world. Beliefs in the heavens and the afterlife were one of the most pivotal facets of Ancient Egyptian culture. Because of this, burial and preparation for the afterlife was extremely important, and the practice of mummification (one of the many things for which the culture is now famous) was prevalent. Richer Egyptians were often buried inside a coffin with their wealth and effigies to certain gods with the hopes that such things would aid them in the afterlife.
