Pyramid of the Gods
Ancient Egyptians saw the pyramid as the primeval hill, rising from the waters of the beginning, the creator's birthplace and throne. The pyramid capstone was their point of contact with the Gods and was related to the rising sun. The king who was buried in the pyramid entered into office in the celestial beyond as the son of Ra. Each one of the four sides of this pyramid is dedicated to a particular God or Goddess. One side is dedicated to Horus, the falcon headed God that represents divine kingship. Another side shows the Goddess Isis, the Mother Goddess, "Great of Magic" wearing the horns and sun disk on her headdress. Another side represents the Goddess Sekhmet, "The Mighty One", "The Eye of Ra", Goddess of War as well as healing, represented with a lion's head. The fourth side shows Amun, supreme state God, "The One Who Abides in All Things", identified with the Sun God, wearing a crown surmounted by two high plumes.
