The Ancient Egyptians’ way of thinking is characterized by the central position given to magic. Everyone, from the simple peasant to the pharaoh, used it on a daily basis. In this culture, images, whether in the form of hieroglyphs, paintings or statues, were a fully-fledged reality endowed with a genuine existence. This book takes a more intimate look at the practices and beliefs of the pharaonic era to enhance our understanding of this unique civilization.
