Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

The Papyrus of Ani, Chapter 15
Adoration of Ra at his rising on the eastern horizon of heaven, by the Osiris scribe of the holy offerings of all the gods, Ani.

He says, Homage to you, who are come as Khepri, Khepri when he created the gods.

You ascend, you rise,

Illuminating your mother, crowned as king of the gods; with her own hands Mother Nut performs the pouring of the libation for you.

Manu receives you in peace, Maat embraces you at the times of morning and evening.

He gives glory, strength, and truth of voice, and the power to come forth as a living soul to see Harmakhis, to the ka of the Osiris scribe Ani, true of voice before Osiris.

He says, O all you gods of the House of the Soul, weighers of heaven and earth in the balance, givers of food and sustenance,

Tatunen, one maker of mortals and the company of gods of the south, north, west, and east.
