Estatuas vivientes del Antiguo Egipto

Living statues of ancient Egypt

The statues of ancient Egypt are not merely representations gritty, but the result of a magic that relied energy cosmic identified with the deities to bear their certain sculptures. But the biggest mystery is that even now, after millennia, these objects retain a strange power that felt its influence on the people who contemplate, and some researchers have been able to record even with the most advanced technology of today.

It all started as a kind of fun. It was a sweltering August morning in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and I was talking with a fellow traveler. Although it was his first visit to Egypt and noted that its expertise was minimal, his presumed ability to receive all kinds of energies. A game mode, I decided to put to the test. After a drop to the first floor, I put him at the beginning of the East Wing, devoted largely to the Empire and the New Era branches. Then I invited him to start walking, warning that something special feeling when I did notice. While he was still several meters away, I saw how it going to parts of several dynasties late without giving more importance, until, almost at the end of the gallery, stopped before a large glass case. Its interior is kept different figures of the reign of Ramses II (1250 BC). Looking at me fixedly, said the parts and asked me: 'What is this? ". Open-mouthed, the first thing I thought at that time was that this person actually had "powers". Among the thousands of pieces that are preserved in this huge gallery about 100 meters long, he had chosen the correct display case. Maybe I read the thought, done that, in any case, there would be no less extraordinary. However, the story surrounding the enigmatic sculptures that stopped before, the same as that of thousands of others that are kept in the basement of the museum, supports the "instinct" for my friend. This is not normal statues. If he could feel his strength because he was possibly thousands of years after leaving the workshops of the artisans of the Egyptian temples still beating something inside of them. They are alive! That feeling can be experienced especially in the chapel of the lioness-goddess Sekhmet (YEAR / ZERO, 109) found in the chapel of Plah within the huge complex of Karnak in Luxor. There, visitors will note a strange energy that emanates from the statue of the goddess and there are many who have dreams and archetypal perceptions that usually appear only in certain altered states of consciousness. Such experiences occur especially around the large set of Karnak. Among the large pylons (solid buildings that served as cover in the Egyptian temples) 111, IV, VII in front of this magnificent shrine and near the popular Lake sacred, it opens a vast courtyard that follows the North-South Complex . Its construction dates from the XVIII dynasty, some 1400 years before the birth of Christ. For the thousands of daily visitors who enter this temple, has nothing particular to the courtyard of the pylon VII. However, the bells of excavations carried out by Frenchman George Legrain between 1903 and 1906 in this place, which in the argot of Egyptology is called 'backyard Cache ", appeared thousands of statues of various royal personages and senior officials who were from the XVIII dynasty until XXV (1400-750 BC). In this pit the statues were able to locate my friend at the Museum of Cairo. Some believe that in the Age Delayed had so many figures that it was impossible to pass through the courtyard, so they decided to bury them. Others think that the hiding of Karnak was created to prevent the Persians, who had just invaded Egypt in the year 525 BC, were made with this precious booty. However, one crucial detail that disassembles this hypothesis: none of the sculptures found belongs to a group of figures that were used for divine worship, that is, those statues that because of its sanctity, were withdrawn from the temple if there was slightest suspicion of danger to its integrity. If we think that the ancient Egyptians gave a magical significance to many of his sculptures, in the belief that they were living beings and as such had to be fed, clothed and cared for every day, the answer to the riddle of the hideout of Karnak certainly departs from any concept of aesthetic form and is in the magic with which these sculptures were produced after vested. In addition, the Egyptians did not use any type of stone for their statues, but each material was chosen on the basis of a plea religious group. Rites of Sun and Moon The finding carried out in the courtyard of the hideout of Karnak is not at all a coincidence. In another similar compound, the courtyard of columns built by Amenhotep III (1400 BC) in the temple of Luxor, a discovery identical barely a decade ago. In 1989, a group of French and Egyptian archaeologists discovered a hideout where they were kept scattered or 26 statues dedicated real size a bit larger than the natural. As in Karnak, all of them belonged to the Empire and the New Era Delayed. It is currently kept in an annex of the Museum of Luxor, not far from the temple where they were discovered. The pottery found next to them for burial-note that, despite the turmoil, he had to be kind of ceremonial. Many have also a special beauty that makes them unique. Quite possibly, caches of these statues are a small example of all that can exist in Egypt, pending an excavation to remove the light. To find the key to this imbroglio of caches we have to go back to the temple of Karnak. There, in the Sancta Sanctorum, the original Middle Kingdom (2000 BC) and refurbished by Thutmose III (1450 BC), retained an illuminating text in which the Egyptian priests made aware of the rites to those subjected to anything more sculptures leave the manufacturing workshop, located in the same temple. At certain times of year, they were uploaded onto the terrace with a view to "recharge" their energy. Not being all the same pictures, some requiring solar and other spots. Depending on the year and month were formally promoted to the highest part of the temple in order to load them, literally, Sun or Moon. This paper demonstrates that the rites aimed at encouraging the statues involved a complex process involving periodic ceremonies to renew the power with which they had been invested to be enshrined, and also that their magical properties were linked with the cosmic energies. Delayed in the Time we also have evidence of ritual invocation to load the sculptures. Jamblico in From the mysteries of the Egyptians (fourth century AD) describes even some rituals called 'incantations barbarians ", which consisted of a long series silábicas to be recited in a predetermined order and unalterable, and whose objective was to confine the energies or spirits in the statues, and that became 'living'. Snapshots evenings Many people who travel to Egypt to have suffered an experience that can not find the explanation: at any given time have been unable to shoot their cameras or have been taken care of is an instant-culture. Something similar happens in the already mentioned Sekhmet chapel, where many people have returned from the trip without the desired photo or video of the goddess. It is not an extraordinary phenomenon. More than one expert in antiquities was surprised to find that the pictures made a simple ushebti of Fayenza-a-votive figure, leaving evenings if the piece had been exposed to the sun for a few hours, as if the small ushebti was able to retain and then expel that energy against the negative of the film. If we analyze both texts bequeathed by the Egyptian priests at the temple of Karnak and the amazing experiments performed today with Egyptian statues, it will not be very difficult to find a solution to the mystery of the caches sculptures: they were buried in the temple with himself, To maintain active energy of the sacred space. The documentary evidence supporting this hypothesis are available to be studied and analyzed. In any case, each day that passes are more numerous theories that take into account the importance of one factor that might call 'organic', not only in temples, but in the rest of the artistic work that we have inherited from Egyptians . A legacy that, as he announced the Egyptologist R. A. Schwaller of Lubicz, it may be more symbolic and magic of what we had thought. Beyond the historical question, the greatest respect to this mystery alive: how is it possible that after thousands of years these statues retain the power that gave life? But this is a secret of the Egyptian magic, not in vain is the matrix of all the magic West.


Estatuas vivientes del Antiguo Egipto

Las estatuas del Antiguo Egipto no son simples representaciones pétreas, sino el resultado de una magia que invocaba la energía cósmica identificada con las divinidades para cargar con su fuerza determinadas esculturas. Pero el mayor misterio es que todavía hoy, al cabo de milenios, estos objetos conservan un extraño poder que deja sentir su influencia en las personas que las contemplan y que algunos investigadores han podido incluso registrar con la tecnología más avanzada de nuestros días.

Todo comenzó como una especie de diversión. Era una sofocante mañana de agosto en el Museo Egipcio de El Cairo y yo charlaba con un compañero de viaje. Aunque era su primera visita a Egipto y se notaba que sus conocimientos en la materia eran mínimos, presumía de su capacidad para percibir todo tipo de energías. A modo de juego, decidí ponerle a prueba. Tras bajar a la primera planta, le coloqué al comienzo del ala Este, dedicada en gran parte al Imperio Nuevo y a la Época Ramásida. A continuación le invité a que comenzara a andar, advirtiéndole que cuando sintiera algo especial me lo hiciera notar. Mientras le seguía a varios metros de distancia, observé cómo iba pasando ante piezas de varias dinastías tardías sin darles mayor importancia, hasta que, casi al final de la galería, se detuvo ante una vitrina grande. En su interior se conservaban diferentes figuras del reinado de Ramsés II (1250 a.C.). Mirándome fijamente, señaló las piezas y me preguntó: «¿Qué es esto?». Boquiabierto, lo primero que pensé en aquel momento fue que aquella persona realmente tenía «poderes». Entre las miles de piezas que se conservan en esa gigantesca galería de unos 100 metros de largo, había elegido la vitrina correcta. Quizás me leyó el pensamiento, hecho que, en cualquier caso, no sería menos extraordinario. Sin embargo, la historia que rodea a las enigmáticas esculturas ...
