Rameses II Heb Sed festival scene

Rameses II Heb-Sed festival scene
Ramesses II Heb Sed festival.
As I walked alone, I was suddenly ripped from my dream like state back into reality, by the so familiar Heb-Sed festival scene. I thought it looked so beautifully, the rounded curves made it look smooth like. I wanted to know more.

Or should I say, that this is a picture of one of the Heb-sed festival scenes.

As I have come to find, these scenes are actually portrayed many places, but also different in looks. Again drawing away from the theory of the Heb-sed festival being a 30 year celebration.

For me it seems more like a ritual displaying the pharaoh uniting the Upper and Lower part of Egypt, another way of proclaiming his right as a pharaoh. I think this because; In this ritual Ramesses II is wearing the Red crown of Lower Egypt, and in an earlier post about Thutmose III Hed sed festival scene, he is wearing the white crown Upper Egypt. 

I have found many scenes where they are wearing different crows and running with different sacred objects in their hands, it might be something completely different, than the uniting of the land. 

No matter what it is an interesting ritual scene, and was clearly very important in ancient days.
As you so easily can see upon the picture above, this is the pharaoh Ramesses II Heb Sed festival.

He is Not the pharaoh mentioned in the Bible, and it is proven by real facts. One such fact is that the pharaoh in the bible tries to follow the Jews across the river, which Moses (with the ancient knowledge) split open so that they could flee. 

The pharaoh ordered his soldiers after them, and the sea swallowed them up. If the Pharaoh Ramesses II was lost at sea or was killed by such, he would hardly be on display in Cairo museum, and if it was him, then he was a very old man when chasing the Jews, hardly likely. 

Then there is the timeline, this fare from adds up. But because Ramesses II was the great king he was, the name Ramesses became a very loved name, and many pharaohs would be called that.

  3. Thank you so much for your comments.

    To the part about the pharaoh in the bible being an earlier pharaoh. I would have to say that this cannot be, again merely because of facts. There was only one other pharaoh named Ramesses, namely Ramesses I who was the grandfather of Ramesses II. Ramesses I only ruled for around two years 1293 - 1291 B.C. And he did not really have any affect upon history, And yet he was the key Gen for the great pharaohs to come. But he could not be the Pharaoh mentioned in the bible, another fact supporting this is that he was in his fifties (50) when he began his two year rule.

    I hope you each have such a lovely weekend.
    Sincerely,

  7. One thing I saw wrong here was the Pharoah wasnt killed or swallowed up by the sea. Since he was Moses's "Brother" God let him live but his soldiers were killed. Or thats at least how I read it. :P

  8. Anonymous,

    That still would not be possible..

    Your not understanding the time line. no matter how you put it, it WAS NOT Ramesses II - Please go to a library and ask for a book about ancient Egypt pharaohs.
    Simply Not possible.
    I hope you have a lovely weekend.

    Sincerely,
    k
