Barche sacre

Secondo la religione egizia, l’anima del faraone veniva trasportata in cielo, per congiungersi con il dio Sole, su una barca sacra, detta “barca solare”.

Nel 1954 fu rinvenuta, nei pressi della grande piramide di Cheope a Giza, un’imbarcazione probabilmente offerta agli dei per questo scopo, molto ben conservata.

Lunga circa 43 metri, ha cinque remi per lato più due a poppa, con funzione di timoni.

Alcuni archeologi pensano che il vascello sia stato effettivamente usato per trasportare il corpo del faraone verso la tomba.

Barche funerarie
Questo tipo di barca era usata per trasportare una sorta di catafalco, un palco adorno di drappi che sosteneva il sarcofago contenente la mummia del defunto, fino alla necropoli.

Barche lunari
Anche la luna navigava per il cielo sopra un’imbarcazione.

Barche processionali
Le barche processionali erano impiegate per il trasporto di una statua delle divinità dal santuario principale ai vari luoghi di culto, durante le feste annuali.
