Light of Egypt — Ancient Egyptian Maiden and Oryx
Ancient Egypt Art Prints

Ancient Egyptian Maiden and Oryx

Allegorical meaning of this painting

This painting describes the liberation and transformation of the soul in the Egyptian religion, here depicted as an Oryx. The additional details illustrate the processes that led the soul from darkness to light, and from ignorance to wisdom. The date palm, for instance, symbolized Spiritual nourishment, teaching and enlightenment. Those of you who are familiar with the life of Gautama Buddha will recall that the Sage gained enlightenment whilst sitting underneath a 'Bodhi' tree. For this reason trees of all kinds played an important role in the religious iconography of ancient Egypt, as they also did in the religion of other countries. The interpretation of natural symbols like this formed a major part of the instructions imparted to students of the Mysteries in Egypt.
