The Book of the Dead and Elysian Fields

That's French for "the ancient system," as in the ancient system of feudal privileges and the exercise of autocratic power over the peasants. The ancien regime never goes away, like vampires and dinosaur bones they are always hidden in the earth, exercising a mysterious influence. It is not paranoia to believe that the elites scheme against the common man. Inform yourself about their schemes here.

The book of the Dead and Elysian Fields Album is a unique incident in the history of ancient documents, and a most valuable portrayal of genuine reproductions in colours from the Tombs of Kings, Queens and Princes, and from the Mortuary Chaples of the Nobles at Thebes. It is a remarkable masterpiece of perfect and unsurpassed illustrations of one of the ancient national religious works.

2 - The Tomb of Ra-aa-Kheperu Amenhotep-neter-heq.an, the second successor of Thothmes IIIrd (B.C. 1448-1420) Amenhotep IInd. -- The funeral chamber where the plan of representing the mummy of the king in his sarcophagus is shown as it is slipped down to the tomb, and three small snakes are opening the way in the dark places of the underworld. The big cobra -- "Apap" with the statue of the god guarding the doors. The sarcophagus, passing the dangerous places, arrives safely. The mummy of the king is represented with the crown on his head coming out of his sarcophagus, and before him the sign of domination is illustrated. Then the procession of the Sacred Boat of the Sun-God is seen traveling in the sky, and the cobra in the sacred boat to open the way in dark places, as the ancient Egyptians always turned to the cobra for protecting their dead in the dim places of the underworld. The last part in the picture is the fifth chapter from the Book of the Dead.

Opposite are the divine guards sitting, and before them is the sign of domination -- the crown of kingship. Second section, is a part of the procession of the sacred boat of the Sun God. Opposite, the Sacred Boat is seen traveling in the sky to represent the journey of the sun. The guard sitting is the God of darkness to show that the sun has arrived to darkness, while Isis is holding two vases of perfumes as an offering to the sun. The three mummies of the king, crowned, are represented to show that the king, too, must make the same journey of the sun. Third section, sarcophagus arrives safely to his last abode conducted by the cobra. In front of each of the four statues of the sitting Gods is the crown of Upper Egypt, Lower Egypt, the mask of the ram, which is the sacred animal of the sun, and the ostrich feathers which are the sign of Truth. These four Gods are watching to drive away the bad spirits that might disturb the spirit of the king. Scene opposite is of several dead men represented passing before the guards of the underworld to their last abode.
