The image heading this post had been deleted several times, and reinstated several times. You would rightly assume that it had struck a chord with me, pricked my finger like a vicious thorn on a beautiful rose. This unforgettable artefact is from the Naqada III prehistoric period in Asyut, Egypt (about 3500-3100 CE). It’s a ceramic model of a boat containing a man in a fetal position journeying into the afterlife.

I’ve been meaning to use the image as a focus for meditation, but found excuses to avoid the exercise. On reflection this is an insight in itself. It seems so obvious now, the boat resembles a womb containing a fetus. Birth into rebirth, twice born initiate. Uh oh, straying into favourite territory again. It’s been a while since I ventured beyond the horizon into shadowy country. His Nibs (Anubis) has been absent for a while, until now.
