Are you ready to travel back into Ancient Egypt! Check the puzzle list for more puzzles for your education and enjoyment including these

Mut was either depicted as a woman, sometimes with wings, or a vulture, usually wearing the crowns of royalty - she was often shown wearing the double crown of Egypt or the vulture headdress of the New Kingdom queens. Pairing, bonding, protecting, loving are essential attributes associated with a vulture. . All these qualities inspired the imagination of the Ancient Egyptians. They adopted what seemed to them at the time to be motherly qualities, the qualities of protecting and nurturing their young. (ID 10051-56)

Meret had a major role in the daily life of ordinary Egyptians. She was the goddess of song and rejoicing, and popular among ordinary people. On Meret's head was usually seen a plant from lotus flower and she often had an offering bowl in her hands which she reached up to the sky. (ID 10057-60)

Ankhet came from Aswan where she protected the first cataract against southerners. She was protector of fresh water and made the annual fertilization of the Nile by the in-flowing mud/water from the south. Her popularity was constant over the years and especially high when Egypt held Nubian territories. Her crown had big plumes of ostrich feathers and her animal was the gazelle. (ID 10061-64)

Nebthet was married to the evil Set and was usually called upon as - "the lady of the house". She usually wore a long dress and on her head she had the sun disk with a house-like object topped with a bowl. This last object could be alone on her head and makes it possible to single her out her from other goddesses in similar clothing. Nebhet was said to master magic and rule over life and death. She was a popular motif for artists and during the Greco-Roman period became identified with the Greek Aphrodite and Nike. (ID 10065-73)

Tefnut helped support the sky, and each morning received the sun on the eastern horizon.In art, Tefnut usually appeared as a lion-headed goddess with a solar disk on her head, or as a woman, or as a lion. Tefnut was the goddess for rain, dew and moisture. In this role she showed her greatest power. Especially important in an arid climate, Tefnut's gift of moisture was vital to survival. (ID 10074-81)
