The hieroglyphs depicted (detailed below), together with Francisca’s use of vivid colour and impactful composition awaken our chakras and offer protection and a long and healthy life to all those to experience its magical breeze.
THE EYE OF RA/ WADJET 'ALL SEEING EYE'
This powerful symbol was believed to have healing and protective powers,
and it was used as a protective amulet. The right eye represented the sun and the
left (EYE OF HORUS) represented the moon. Egyptians also used them to protect buildings and themselves.
In the afterlife of ancient Egyptian culture, the feather had a purpose of measuring weight. Once the souls of the newly dead entered the underworld, Ma’at, the
Egyptian goddess of justice, would weigh their hearts against the weight
of a feather determining the worthiness of the soul.
The feather was also thought to be symbolic of the sky gods and to signify truth, speed, and lightness/airiness.
Bennu was the name given to the bird that represented Ra’s soul. This bird was seated at the Tree of Life and was associated with the Sun, creation, and rebirth.
