Egyptian Swallows: Carrying souls into the afterlife

Posted by Discoveries Inc. on

When we went to Egypt, we noticed on the walls of temples and tombs that there were many images of birds. It is clear that the swallow played an important role in the afterlife of ancient Egyptians. In ancient Egypt, birds served many purposes. In the Book of the Dead, there are instructions for the deceased on how to transform into a swallow. Swallows were associated with stars and the souls of the dead.

Our ceramic bird statues were handmade by skilled Egyptian artisans. They have a traditional arabesque design. We offer these charming statues in four colors: blue, green, white and red.
