The cult of the immortal affords us a unique glimpse into life of the people of the remote past: into their belief in the continuity of life through death, which obsessed them with death but also with the joy of living; into their social organisation and health; into their feeling for the natural world, which led them to "take with them" into the other world dogs and cats, ibises, monkeys and scarab beetles by thousands. Egyptian mummy thus speak to us not only about themselves, but about the peculiarities of human history and human belief. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).
