Egypt: stelae, figurines and other votive offeringsAncient Egypt is known for imposing temples, where ordained priests performed sacred rituals daily. For the common people who could not enter these sacred spaces, votive objects formed an important part of religious experience. This lecture will explore how objects such as stelae and figurines were used to honour the gods and the spirits of the dead, and what these objects can tell us about the Pharaonic religion.
