I’m writing a longer blog entry for later, but until then…
As a child, while I was reading Greek and Roman mythology, I was also fascinated by Egypt and its mummies.
The whole idea of preparing a body for an eternal afterlife was (and still is) fascinating. Reading about the magic and ritual involved in the Ancient Egyptian rites of the dead is still a favorite of mine.
I came across this again today. I had completely forgotten about it, but it’s definitely one of my favorite little music videos. Probably not what the Egyptians originally had in mind as a possible consequence of mummification.
A tragic love story of death and rebirth.
