Offerings to a divinity on a wall of the first terrace of the temple of Hatchepsut. For the former Egyptians, the human being consists of three major elements which are dispersed at the time of death. The body is regarded as a material support. The ba, represented by a bird with human head, is a spiritual component that they indicate sometimes under the name of soul. The ka, that they often translate by double, represents the vital energy, it is it which allows the subsistence in beyond and it is thus to it that address the funerary offerings. The life is the union of the three principles, death corresponds to their dissociation. The purpose of the momification is to gather them again.
