Egyptian Faience Khnum Amulet, Third Intermediate to Late Period, c. 1069-525 BC

The striding ram-headed god is finely modeled, with hands clenched by his sides, wearing a shendyet-kilt, on an integral rectangular base, pierced for suspension.

Khnum was one of the earliest Egyptian deities, originally the god of the source of the Nile River. Since the annual flooding of the Nile brought with it silt and clay, and its water brought life to its surroundings, he was thought to be the creator of the bodies of human children, which he made at a potter’s wheel, from clay, and placed in their mothers’ wombs. He later was described as having moulded the other deities, and he had the titles Divine Potter and Lord of created things from himself. His significance led to early theophoric names of him, for children, such as Khnum-Khufwy – “Khnum is my Protector”, the full name of Khufu (r. 2589–2566 BC), builder of the Great Pyramid.

The worship of Khnum centered on two principal riverside sites, Elephantine Island and Esna, which were regarded as sacred. At the Elephantine temple, which dates to the Middle Kingdom (2055–1650 BC), he was worshipped alongside his daughter, Anuket and Satis, his consort, as the guardian of the source of the Nile River.  At Esna, the temple dates to the Ptolemaic Period (323-30 BC), when the worship of Khnum flourished there.

Egyptian Bronze Figure of Sekhmet, Late Period, 716-30 BC

The Lion-headed goddess is enthroned with her arms held by her sides, and wearing a long close fitting dress, broad collar, and striated tripartite wig surmounted by a fragmentary sun-disk and uraeus. The sides of the throne are engraved with a scale pattern.

Sekhmet was originally the warrior goddess as well as goddess of healing for Upper Egypt. She is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It was said that her breath formed the desert. She was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them in warfare.

In order to placate Sekhmet’s wrath, her priestesses performed a ritual before a different statue of the goddess on each day of the year. This practice resulted in many images of the goddess being preserved. Most of her statuettes were rigidly crafted and do not exhibit any expression of movements or dynamism; this design was made to make them last a long time rather than to express any form of functions or actions she is associated with. It is estimated that more than seven hundred statues of Sekhmet once stood in one funerary temple alone, that of Amenhotep III, on the west bank of the Nile.

You will notice the face of the gods are defaced, because after this religion fell, a lot of coptic christian egyptians moved into the temples and started living there. These coptic egyptians believed that these “old gods” were evil spirits and there was no need for this religion anymore. So they defaced the pictures of the gods in order to destroy the remains of the old religion and ward off evil spirits. 

Sometimes I think too hard

about illuminati, new world order, aliens, pyramids, 2012, monarch programming and the agendas of the government. There’s nothing I can really do about it, but let try and spread the word about all of these things. 

Controlling you through fear the government gives you a false sense of safety. Taking advantage of you and now watching your every move. They can detain you without reasonable cause. All the TV networks and music labels are run by the same people. They control everything you see. Since you were little putting subliminal messages in your Disney movies.

Seriously educate yourself people. Read the lyrics in the songs you listen to, pay closer attentions to music videos you watch. 

Sumerian Records, the sphinx is real.

Born of Osiris.

Periphery.

Every heard of the Illuminati Card game?

it explains their plans in detail, and a lot of the plans have already carried through.
