Bookmarks Egypt | Pharaonic colouring templates

On these pages of the Roman shop Teaching material Egypt, various bookmarks made of papyrus paper take you into the world of ancient Egypt. The bookmarks Egypt can be coloured and painted by the pupils - also with conventional paints and pens, watercolours or tempera, which you will also find under this category of the Roman Shop.

Painting the eye of Horus on the Egypt bookmark yourself

The Egyptian eye of Horus is also available as a wonderful bookmark Egypt made of papyrus paper on the pages Teaching material Egypt on the pages of the Roman shop. The eye of Horus, also called the Udjat eye (udjat for intact, complete, whole, healthy) or Udzat eye, is incidentally an ancient Egyptian symbol of Horus, the god of light. It is also an Egyptian hieroglyph that carried magical significance and was even used in mathematics. The Horus Eye is the restored left eye ("moon eye") of the god of light Horus, healed by Thot.

Originally, the symbol served for protection and was used from the beginning of the Old Kingdom until the end of the Pharaonic period as an amulet and protective sign against the "evil eye". In the New Kingdom, coffin walls and grave goods were decorated with it - it is also considered the "magic eye" and has gained a great deal of recognition. It was also used in mathematics by the ancient Egyptians. The so-called stem fractions (1/x) and those of the powers of two 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 were written as elements of the eye of Horus. And historically interesting in this context, certainly for the mathematicians among the clever students: the sum of the fractions is said to have been made to disappear by the god Thot! In medicine, the Eye of Horus was used as an amulet and perhaps also as a healing spell.

Bookmarks Egypt inspire history(s)!

Let the other bookmarks such as the god Thot (mentioned above) or Osiris and Horus under the category Bookmarks Egypt inspire you to a creative lesson in which the students experience history in a completely different way! Knowledge that will certainly never be lost again when learned this way!

Design your own gods as bookmarks!

The Egypt bookmarks made of papyrus paper offer, for example, the Egyptian god Anubis, a deity with the head of a jackal who is responsible for embalming the dead. Translated, the name of the ancient god means: "He who is in the bandages of the mummy." The typical attribute of the god Anubis is the jackal or a man with the head of a jackal. The bookmarks made of papyrus paper can be painted with all common colours, such as acrylic or watercolours. However, tempera paints are particularly recommended because they have a very good covering colour strength and also because they were already used by the Romans and Egyptians. In this way, the pupils can make a bookmark, as was customary in Egyptian culture in days long gone.
