Egyptian Boat Model

Ancient Egyptians engaged in some of the most elaborate funeral practices of any great civilisation. They tried to provide their dead with everything necessary to complete the journey from this life to the next, and sometimes beyond. The funerary boat is one example of the Egyptian attempt to care for their dead long after death.

The funerary boat is a typical tomb offering from ancient Egypt and symbolizes the transport of the dead person or their soul, from life to the afterlife. Egyptians saw death as a boat journey, a trip across their River Nile, which ran down the centre of their country, joining North and South, country and city. The Nile was, in fact, the source of fertility and farming as well as trade and transport for Egyptians.

Some of the rich people who died were placed on a large funerary boat and carried to their tombs along the river. Then, they were taken to their tomb. However, many tombs had miniature funerary boats placed inside.
