|Our socity had a good talk on 'celbrations & indulgence from the 3rd intermediate period.
For 200 years there were almost no private statues then in the 22nd dynasty there were loads ( this period is supposed tio be impoverished but how did they afford all the granite statues?)
Apparently 'roaming the marshes ' has erotic connotations.
My heart is a god, its shrine is the stomach
it rejoices when the limbs are festive
is a quote from a statue of the priest Nebnetjeru.
