Rare ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ANTIQUES Carved Limestone Statue BA Soul Egyptian BC. ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ANTIQUES Statue BA Soul Human Headed Bird Flying Out Of Tomb BC. Is an aspect of a person that the Egyptians believed would live after the body died , and it is sometimes depicted as a human-headed bird flying out of the tomb to join with the ka in the afterlife. In the Coffin Texts, one form of the ba that comes into existence after death is corporeal eating, drinking and copulating. Egyptologist Louis Vico abkar argues that the ba is not merely a part of the person but is the person himself, unlike the soul in Greek, or late Judaic, Christian or Muslim thought.The idea of a purely immaterial existence was so foreign to Egyptian thought that when Christianity spread in Egypt , they borrowed the Greek word psych to describe the concept of soul instead of the term ba. Abkar concludes that so particular was the concept of the ba to ancient Egyptian thought that it ought not to be translated but instead the concept be footnoted or parenthetically explained as one of the modes of existence for a person. Ba Soul : In another mode of existence the ba of the deceased is depicted in the Book of the Dead returning to the mummy and participating in life outside the tomb in non-corporeal form, echoing the solar theology of Ra uniting with Osiris each night. Ba Soul : The word bw (baw), plural of the word b, meant something similar to "impressiveness", "power", and "reputation", particularly of a deity. When a deity intervened in human affairs, it was said that the bw of the deity were at work. Height : 22 cm / 8.66 inch. Bottom width : 5 cm / 1.96 inch. Bottom Length : 10.7 cm / 4.21 inch.
