Pagan Eye: Thoth, God of Writing at the BM Exhibition
On the day the Hieroglyphs exhibition opens at the British Museum, here’s Thoth, the Egyptian god of writing. I took the photo when I went to a preview last weekend. The information below the statues says:
“The patron god of writing, thinking and learning was Thoth, the moon deity. His name means ‘the one of the ibis’ and he could be depicted as an ibis or a man with an ibis head, possibly because the curve of the beak resembles the crescent moon. Sometimes, he was also depicted as a baboon holding up the moon. The Greeks associated him with Hermes. and eventually with Hermes Trismegistus, the legendary inventor of writing.”
Hieroglyphs: Unlocking Ancient Egypt runs from 13 October 2022 to 19 February 2023 in the Sainsbury Exhibitions Gallery at the British Museum. You can find out more here: britishmuseum.org/hieroglyphs
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting – seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to [email protected] Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
