Best Answer

The pyramids were not painted although a particular type of stone was used to obtain the desired effect. For example, the three pyramids at Giza were cased in polished white stone which made them gleam in the sunlight. The top stone or pyramidon was sometimes cased in gold.

Who was herishef?

The name Herishef is a variant of Harsaphes or Heryshaf, the Egyptian ram-headed god who was also identified with Ra and Osiris. The name Herishef seems to be used more on French and Spanish websites: http://mythologica.fr/egypte/herishef.htm http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herishef The English version of Wikipedia lists this deity as Heryshaf, but the names Harsaphes and Herishef seem to be more common. (From the number of hits returned from a Google search, anyway.)


What is the hagira?

The Hagira was a princess in ancient Egyptians times. She was known for her kindness,dignity. She was also the most pretty women in the history of ancient Egypt. She died and Egyptians say that her GREATEST GRANDAUGHTER will come back. Maybe she already is here or yet coming. Anyway when she arrives she will free Egypt from evil and will become queen. Like once her GREATEST GRANDMOTHER was. Time will tell us when she arrives. But for all means she must be a true Egyptian and then she will become a true queen. LETS SEE WHAT HISTORY HOLD.


What did ancient Egyptian children wear?

poorer women and men in ancient Egypt wore white cloths made out of linen that they wrapped around themselves, while richer people wore fine cloth robes with lots of color. children and babies wore nothing because back then people didn't care and the babies would probably like it better anyway! another reason was because it was very hot.
