Silhoutte on a Dark Night


The tomb of Paheri, an Eighteenth dynasty nomarch of Nekhen, has an eloquent description of this existence: Your life happening again, without your ba being kept away from your divine corpse, with your ba being together with the akh ... You shall emerge each day and return each evening. A lamp will be lit for you in the night until the sunlight shines forth on your breast. You shall be told: "Welcome, welcome, into this your house of the living!"
