Description

The hieroglyphs on our Egyptian Hieroglyphs Umbrella are adapted from the inscription on the lower portion of a funerary stela (ca. 1910 B.C.) for the treasurer Rehuerdjersen, commissioned by his brother about 40 years after his death. The inscription lists the names of Rehuerdjersens relatives, reflecting their pride in such an illustrious family member. The ancient Egyptians usually wrote a name with sound signs followed by either a seated man or woman hieroglyph, denoting in the case of this stela, a male or female relative.

Polyester. Automatic open/auto close. Includes an umbrella bag. Folded 10 1/2''L. Canopy 42''W.

Art History

Hieroglyphs were largely sound signs, but some signs could stand for what they depicted, while others were used to explain what kind of word was meant. The hieroglyph that depicted a seated man was used as such a sense sign when placed after the given name of a male, while the seated woman was used behind the name of a female relative. The hieroglyphs on this inscription all faced to the right, indicating that it was written from right to left.
