What: "The egyptians were not trying to capture the real image of humans or gods; instead they were using symbols as a form of expression. For example the symbol for life, the Ankh,the key of Nile, or the eye of Horus as a protective sight over the human soul. Also the ancient belief that the circle of life is like the sun, there is another life on earth after death, inspired the mummies stories and myths and for the same reason the rich pharaos stored every piece of jewelry and art in the tombs where they were supossed to be stored untill their body would take the next soul, the next lifeform.
