Ritual Egyptian Boat

Ritual Egyptian Boat

Old Architect
Description
The "solar bark" was the central element in ancient Egyptian temples. It contained the statue of the god within the shrine(s) below the sloped canopy & was carried by priests during ritual days or celebrations. Most of the time the bark rested on a pylon in the temple sanctuary hidden from the public. Each bark was unique having varying iconic elements for the various pantheon of gods. Though no barks have survived from antiquity, this model is based on extant images from several temples + actual shrines in the Cairo museum. You can drop it in your model for that added touch of authenticity. #ancient_egyptian_artifact #bark_shrine #egyptian_boat #egyptian_temple #sanctuary_shrine #solar_bark #solar_barque #solar_boat #sun_boat #temple_architecture #temple_boat #temple_furniture #temple_shrine
