People have always been fascinated with the origin and content of Egyptian hieroglyphics. The ancient Egyptians believed that writing was invented by the god Thoth and called their hieroglyphic script "mdwt ntr" (god's words). The word hieroglyph comes from the Greek hieros (sacred) plus glypho(inscriptions) and was first used by Clement of Alexandria. The earliest known examples of writing in Egypt have been dated to 3,400 BC. The hieroglyphic script was used mainly for formal inscriptions on the walls of temples and tombs. Perhaps the greatest testaments to the Egyptians' power are the pyramids and other tombs they built to shelter them in the afterlife. Our skilled professionals can construct scaled models of Egyptian and Mayan Pyramids to your exact specifications. As you can see, we have already constructed pyramids for films in the past and even included built-in lighting for night scenes. These well lit pyramids can also be used at theme parks, museums or any other purpose you can imagine. Ancient Egyptians believed that when the pharaoh died, he became Osiris, king of the dead. The new pharaoh became Horus, god of the heavens and protector of the sun god. This cycle was symbolized by the rising and setting of the sun. Some part of a dead pharaoh's spirit, called his ka, was believed to remain with his body. And it was thought that if the corpse did not have proper care, the former pharaoh would not be able to carry out his new duties as king of the dead. If this happened, the cycle would be broken and disaster would befall Egypt. To prevent such a catastrophe, each dead pharaoh was mummified, which preserved his body, and placed in one of these magnificent pyramids. Everything the king would need in his afterlife was provided in his grave—vessels made of clay, stone, and gold, furniture, food, even doll-like representations of servants, known as ushabti. His body would continue to receive food offerings long after his death. Just let us know what kind of Egyptian or Mayan pyramid, wall carving or inscription you have in mind and we will help you obtain what you are looking for by collaborating with you to create what you need.
