PHOTO OF THE WEEK – BEAUTY IN THE AFTERLIFE

Admiring the slim silhouettes of the men and women depicted in the wall paintings in tombs and temples, I was surprised not to see any overweight or ugly people. The Egyptologist who was with us explained why,

“These are not true representations of the person, but images of how they want to be seen in the afterlife – remember the afterlife is for eternity!”
