Hi All,
My wife just bought 4 decor tiles for here living room decoration project.
I'd like to know what do those symbols mean before put them on the wall.
Could you please look at the pictures and may be someone will recognize what are they?
thanks.

Hey Customstones!

Welcome to our little place here at KTO! It’s a bit slow at the moment but things always pick up! :o) With that being said, I really like the tiles shown here! They are very modern looking and will make a nice addition to your home—I guess I am saying your wife has wonderful taste! :o)

Image 1: The first tile looks like a lion of some sort so I am going to say it might be form of Sekhmet . Perhaps Basset? It could very well just be an Ancient Egyptian representation of a lion in general.

Image 2: Could be a set four embalmers carrying a platform. It was believed that in Ancient Egypt, priests would wear a mask of Anubis while embalming as there were many magical reasons to ensure the mummification process went as planned. If it is not that, it might just be for representations of Anubis.

Image 3: The third Image is a vulture of some sort. If it is a vulture, it represents the symbolism of motherhood. It could very well be a representation of the goddess Mut who was a main god in Thebes.

Image 4: Hmmmmmmmmm! I have seen this before but to tell you the truth I have no clue to what it might be….someone else perhaps?

Thank you Anubis2001,
What about the small Hieroglyphs on the left side of 4-th picture? do you have the ideas what do they mean?
