Pharaoh : Life and Afterlife of a Go.

By (author) David Kennett. Full of fascinating, little-known details about Ancient Egypt all brought to life by David Kennett's stunning graphic novel-style artwork, "Pharaoh" shines a jewel-toned light on the lives and afterlives of Seti I and Ramesses II-and the powerful civilizations they built.

In Ancient Egypt, the pharaoh is the supreme ruler and overseer of every aspect of life―a living god. From the moment of his coronation, he is busy with the construction of elaborate temples, the conquering of foreign lands, and the creation of beautiful jewelry and art, all of which are done to worship the great Egyptian gods and to expand the pharaoh's eternal legacy. Yet Pharaoh is ever mindful of his eventual journey into the afterlife and his final transformation into a complete god. Through such funerary rites as embalming and organ removal, the pharaoh's soul will move on to paradise, while his body remains on earth in one of his ornately decorated temples. Full of fascinating, little-known details about Ancient Egypt all brought to life by David Kennett's stunning graphic novel-style artwork, Pharaoh shines a jewel-toned light on the lives and afterlives of Seti I and Ramesses II―and the powerful civilizations they built.

I bought this for my grand daughter and read it as well. It is very informative and interesting and the illustrations are excellent.

Seti I was a ruler in the New Kingdom of Egypt, one of three divisions of ancient Egypt recognized by historians. Perhaps you might think he was a relative unknown ruler, but most do recognize the name Ramesses II, his son. Pharaohs were considered to be living gods and as a tribute to them, preparation for their eternal life began on the first day they ruled. Can you imagine people preparing for your death every day, let alone even ponder the thought? It was part of the culture and a way to honor the most important members in ancient Egypt.

We follow Seti I through his reign into his death and afterlife. "Seti is considered part god, part man-the bridge between the world of humans and the world of gods. In death he becomes fully divine, a true god. Seti is a king in the afterlife just as he was in this world." After Seti, the book picks up the fabulous life of Ramesses, the next chief priest in Egypt. The book explores his life, his estates, Karnak (the largest temple ever built), farming, festivals, the Nile river, Egypt's animal life, the country's natural resources, the economy and much more. Naturally, the Ramesseum, was under construction during his life to send him into the afterlife as a memorial to his life. Ramesses, unlike Seti, would not be easily forgotten as "he [strode] as largely as any of his colossal statues across the landscape of Egypt's history."

This is without a doubt, a marvelous introduction to ancient Egypt, it's customs, culture and the life of the Pharaohs. This volume is profusely illustrated, including the end pages which include more than 100 symbols. The stunning visuals relay the story almost as well as the text. One section includes 18 miniature tomb paintings and descriptions of their purpose and meaning. Included are a glossary and index. If you see the author's name, "David Kennett," you are looking at a quality book!
