Archaeological evidence of funerary customs show that religion was an integral part of Egyptian culture. The Pyramid Texts indicated that the Egyptians believed an individual’s soul had many aspects that continued after death, which consisted of the ba, akh and ka. The ba represents the individual’s alter ego which would travel outside the tomb, whereas the akh reflects the ‘intermediary between the living and the dead’. The ka was believed to be the individual’s twin in which their personality is represented. This strongly implicates that the ancient Egyptian civilisation believed in a spiral realm.

One hieroglyphics at the Albany Institute, in particular, was the “biography” of the mummy Ankhefenmut. The hieroglyphs told who he was, what he did in his lifetime, and how he prepared for his afterlife. Within his “biography”, it was stated that he was a sculptor and a priest.
