Country of Origin: EGYPT

Birds sat all over an acacia tree. The acacia tree was revered as the tree of life by the ancient Egyptians, who regularly represented it with the sycamore tree in wall paintings and murals. Other gods were frequently shown emerging from such trees, including Isis and Osiris.

The birds in the Tree of Life stand for the various stages of human existence, including infancy, childhood, youth, adulthood, and maturity.
Every stage causes the bird's size to rise. Each stage of a man's life is portrayed by a tree with fruits that are ready to be picked, symbolizing the relevance and significance of each soul and its role in the universe. Ancient Egyptians thought that the direction east was the direction of life because the sun rose in the east. Because the sun sets in the west, that direction was thought to represent death and the afterlife. They believed that during the night, the sun traveled through the underworld on its way back to the east, where it would rise the following morning.

On the tree of life, the birds that stand for the first four stages of life all face east, but the bird that represents aging faces west, portending the approach of death. the fabled acacia tree from which the first union of Isis and Osiris is said to have come.

The dark brown strip at the base of the trunk was missing, otherwise exactly as pictured.

Perfect for my corner nook, beside my grandfather's woodcarving of Nefertiti. My first overseas trip when I was 19 was to Egypt; the quality of this papyrus is better than what they sold to tourists there. Very grateful.

This papyrus print is well made and the colors of the print itself are vibrant! All the items I have made from here are worth the purchase. All are of good quality and are shipped quickly.
