Tiki statues were carved to represent the image of a certain god and as an embodiment of that specific god's mana, or power. This is only a partial list of the many Hawaiian gods. To this day, they are revered and respected by many. Father of living creatures.
Kane is the highest of the four major gods. Human sacrifices were made to Ku in ancient times. God of the underworld and a teacher of magic. Ruler of the ocean. One last item of importance: People can learn the names of the gods and what they are best known for. Like the Edda tells the tails of the Norse gods, this presents some key papyrus and other sources tell the tails of the Egyptians gods and their personalities.
We learn of amulets, spells, and histories of the gods and their people. There are other sources but this one is unique in its organizing the different tears of gods and their relation to each other. Because they are mixed version the start rating is for the book in general. The kindle is worse as at least the free version removed even the book's sketches and replaces them with a reference.
So no graphics at all. What, the kindle dictionary knows about Ra but not most of the gods. Still more the kindle text-to-speech is too literal many god and place names are mispronounced. Many references are replaced by FN. Spell that out loud and you can imagine the text-to-speech girl is cussing at you.

With the compilation contained here in, there is no way the student of Ancient Egypt should depend upon the translation of someone else. I really enjoy creating my own translations and then comparing it to those of Budge and Falkner. Sir Wallis Budge did a great job of providing a summary and then a highly detailed image of Egyptian beliefs in this book. He includes the hierogliphic texts so that one can do the homework themselves.
Everyone that is serious about religious studies should own this book. Christians might be surprised as to what's in this book as well. Another Great translation by Budge. Must read for those who seek a greater mental perspective of reality. Almost all of ancient literature from "Egypt" is symbolic and not literal. Gimme back my Marvel Comics!
Who wants all this stuff with all words and no color comic panels? They expect me to read all these paragraphs!!! Come on, if you don't know anything about the subject material, stick with Captain Marvel and reading boxes of Cheerios.
This is one of the modern world's greatest Egyptologists presenting nine of the greatest myths of ancient Egypt, translated directly from the hieroglyphs. It doesn't get much better than this. No, you won't see any color glossies of Harrison Ford, and they do use long words made up of even six, seven, sometimes eight characters. And some of the sentences even contain as many as ten words!
All in a row! But this is the real stuff, primary source material. Written thousands of years ago. True what the ancient Egyptians had to say probably doesn't quite compare to visceral, heady thrills of the adventures of Captain Marvel. But for the rest of the literate and educated world, this is required reading if you're seriously interested in ancient Egypt and their mythology.
