A topic feared by many is the subject of @thegooddeath ‘s newest book—less a study of the macabre than a fascinating anthropological journey!

Odd Things Considered looked at death photography Monday and Tuesday. I discussed images from SLEEPING BEAUTY II from the Burns Archive and BEYOND THE DARK VEIL from the Thanatos Archive. Rather than share images from the books here I decided instead to share a piece of art @thepoorhenry bought me to complement my death photography books. Seemed a better idea since some people find death photography upsetting. If you'd like to see some examples, visit OTC, link to site in bio. #deathphotography #funerarycustoms #theburnsarchive @burnsarchive #sleepingbeauty2 #beyondthedarkveil, #jackmord #thanatosarchive #thanatosdotnet @thanatos.archive

Mummy mask and its protective amulets . Egyptians view the underworld life as a connection with the Gods . Undoubtedly any Egyptian, royal or not , would want assurance of a safe journey to the next world , but the Pyramid Texts were for royalty only. When Egypt reestablished stability in the 11 dynasty,a new custom arose .The nobility began placing magical spells on their coffins. Because these spells are so similar to the Pyramid Texts, it has been suggested that the impetus for the new custom was the opening of the pyramids. Sarcophagi and coffins were viewed as houses of the deceased. Usually the sarcophagus and lid were sealed by a thin layer of cement along the edges .They were sparsely decorated , merely imitating the earthy house of the deceased .#ancientegypt #ancienthistory #egyptology #anthropology #studies#funerarycustoms #museum #coffins #coffintexts #resurrection #nobleperson#workingonmydiploma#древнийегипет#duat#traditions #historygram #egyptologygram#instahistory
