Color Your World 2018: 120 Days of Crayola – Turquoise

Winged Sun

Ceiling painting, Temple at Medinet Habu, Egypt

Section of painted ceiling from the Mortuary Temple of Ramses III at Medinet Habu. Ramses III reigned from 1186–1155 BC. Some consider him the last great Pharaoh. The temple, one of the largest memorial temples in Egypt, is on the west bank of the Nile, near Luxor.  Some interior room walls and ceilings have retained sections of painted stucco. The winged disk is a symbol of the sun god and is found in various forms throughout Egyptian and Near Eastern art.  It is associated with divinity, royalty and power.
