The feathers of Ra


Ra is the Sun god of Egypt and the origin of life in Egyptian mythology. This god with a falcon head is the symbol of the Sun because Ra is the creator of all life and is responsible for the cycle of death and resurrection.

To give light to humans and animals, Ra carry the Sun on his head and travel in the sky. It was believed that he travelled on a celestial boat from East to West during a 24-hour trip:

- During the day, the boat of Ra was known as "Mandjet". Depending on the time of the day, Ra manifested himself in three different entities: at dawn, Ra is the beetle-headed god Khepri; at noon, Ra become the falcon-headed god Ra-Horakhty; and at dusk, Ra become the pharaoh-god Atum).

- At night, Ra traveled on a small barge called "Mensenktet". It is during the night that he must fight the serpent Apep, the incarnation of chaos who want to eat the Sun. Fortunately, Ra always triumphs over the terrible snake and a new day can begin.
