What is the Egyptian symbol for grace?
Grace is after all a Christian religious concept. I believe you are thinking of the Ankh a sort of Cross with a voided ellipse. some feel this is a feminine symbol based on a stylized Vagina with cruciform device added. I have seen Ankhs tatooed on Ladies legs where any religious symbol would be , to put it mildly OUT OF PHASE IF NOT TOTALLY OFF-BASE. show some respect. My Guess is you mean the Ankh, pronounced as it is spelled. Rhymes with (Honk!)

From what I understand, hathor aka the cow goddess, is the goddess of beauty for Egypt. Understanding that, I would assume that the symbol of the cow would be considered the symbol of beauty.
Since Egyptian Hieroglyphics are much like the letters of our alphabet, there would not be a single symbol for an entire sentence, but rather a series of symbols that spell out the meanings of the words. Also, they recognized many different Gods, and each had a different symbol. The symbol in your… question for God would depend on which one of the gods you were talking about.

The ancient Egyptian had many symbols for many different types of strength. The elephant is brute strength, as it was used for transporting large loads and people. The giraffe is strength with grace and flexibilty because of its natural movements.
It is wrong to think that Egyptian hieroglyphs have a symbol for every modern English idea. Ancient Egyptian was a spoken language made up of words spelled out with "sound-signs" in hieroglyphs; occasionally just one sign can indicate a whole word but this is quite rare. The word for "friendsh…ip" is xnms [vowels were not written and we can never know what they should be in each word]. This functions both as a verb and a noun, meaning both "to be friendly with" and "friendship". The determinative sign at the end of the word is a seated man with his arms extended slightly outwards, which also features after words meaning "tired" or "weak". (MORE)
It is wrong to think that the ancient Egyptian writing system had a symbol for each word - there were very few signs that worked like that. Most words had to be spelled out using phonemes (sound signs) representing the consonants of the word, but the vowels were not written. The words for family …were written hnw , mhwt, wHyt or Abt (where the A represent a consonant sound not found in English). (MORE)

The scarab. ^!!WRONG!!^ The Scarab is the god of death silly.. The Phoenix is the ancient egyptians symbol of rebirth. ^^ Actually, both are valid symbols of rebirth. The scarab was not "the god of death". Khepera (who was portrayed as a scarab rolling the sun across the sky) was the god of the …rising sun, which the Ancient Egyptians seen as a rebirth of the sun god, Ra. ^YES^ now that is correct...thank you!

Well, the fish is a Christian symbol which got it's origin after Jesus was ascended into Heaven. ======= Answer: I guess you are asking about the ancient Egyptian hieroglyph showing a fish (B64 in the British Museum system, K1 in the Gardiner classification). This sign can have several func…tions: . as an abbreviation for the word "fish", it stands alone and is followed by a short, thin vertical stroke . as a determinative, it follows the names of many different species of fish in the ancient Egyptian language (in these cases it has no sound value and serves only to identify the kind of word being written) . as a phoneme (sound sign) it has the value in , where the i is a consonant not found in English. It can therefore form part of the spelling of words such as inH "surround", another inH "eyebrows", int "valley", inty "hinder", inm "skin", insy "bright red linen", in "ropes of a ship", inst "calf of the leg", inhmn "pomegranate" and many more.

There are two primary symbols, very closely related. The Scales of Judgment and the Feather of Ma'at. Ma'at is the goddess of truth, justice and righteousness. As the belief goes, when a person dies, they are led into the Hall of Judgment to stand before the god Osiris and a council of 42 Assesso…rs. The person's heart is then weighed on the Scales against the Feather of Ma'at. Should their heart be lighter than the feather, it means that they are a good and honest person who lived a good life and they are then allowed to enter into the afterlife. If their heart is heavier than the feather, they do not earn a place in the afterlife and their heart is consumed by a terrible monster who sits near the scales waiting for a snack. (MORE)
Before Egypt was at it's height in power, and at it's most notable and recognizable, there were small farming communities using obsidian and other elements to make blades. As they grew, they began expanding their territory, trading with other cultures around the Nile. One culture made a wide selecti…on of material goods, including combs, painted decorative pottery, quality vases made of stone, and jewelry made mainly of gold and ivory. They also created a ceramic glaze used to decorate cups, amulets, and figurines. As they kept growing as a civilization, this culture began using written symbols from their pottery designs and other artwork that eventually became a full system of hieroglyphs and symbols for writing.

The ancient Egyptian numeric system has no zero, nor does it need one. Because there are completely different signs for units, tens, hundreds, thousands, ten thousands, hundred thousands and so on, simply leaving out one type of sign expresses the absence of that number - no zero is required. In …writing, the idea of "nothing" or "zero" is expressed by the word nfr but this is not used in arithmetic calculations. (MORE)

Sekhmet had two symbols: red linen (she is often shown wearing a red dress because she almost killed off the humans in the myth), and the sun disk. She is seen as the daughter of Re (or Ra) the sun god. However, above her head is a sun disk with an Uranus (snake on the pharaoh's head dress) on it. S…he carries the Ankh, the symbol of immortality. Egyptian pharaohs and gods (and goddesses) are seen holding this in art. In the other hand she is holding the Was, the symbol of power and dominance. The top of it is a line going side ways, while the end is 'forked'. Hope this helped anyone who (or whom) may be wondering what Sekhmet's symbol is. ;) (MORE)

The Goddess Tefnut ( tfnt in hieroglyphs) has no specific symbol in the way that other goddesses have. She is depicted either as a woman with a lioness' head or simply as a human woman; occasionally she appears as a lion-headed snake. The Egyptian religion included several other lion-headed godd…esses, so you need to be able to read the text next to her to establish that it is Tefnut and not Sekhmet, Wadjet or one of the others.

When in the context of written work, as shorthand, it is not. (MORE)
Like many systems, you either have some of something, or you don't. If you do, you use a number for it. If not, no number is required. What is the point of saying "Hi fred, I own 0 Rolls Royces?"

Egyptian hieroglyphs include at least 5 different "sceptre" signs, all with different meanings. One of these is the jackal- or dog-headed sceptre with a straight shaft and a forked lower end; this has the tri-consonant value w3s ( 3 being a sound not found in English). It has the basic meaning… of power or authority and it helps to spell words such as wsr "powerful". The same sceptre sign with a feather attached spells wsrt "Thebes". The same sceptre but with a wavy shaft has the tri-consonant value dj+'+m. There are several more sceptre signs. (MORE)

In a way, yes she did. This was the side view of a throne - which was part of her name written in hieroglyphs - often shown carried on her head. Just as often she is shown with cow horns and a sun disk on her head, but this is also sometimes worn by Hathor. On its own , however, the side view of …throne is simply the hieroglyph for "throne" and does not itself mean Isis. Only when shown on the head of the goddess, or in close association with her, is it the symbol of Isis. See link below for an images: (MORE)
It is wrong to think that the ancient Egyptian writing system had a "symbol" for every single concept - only a very few of its signs work like that. In most cases words had to be spelled out using phonemes (sound signs). The ancient Egyptian word for "knowledge" is written with signs that spell r…+kh+t, rxt . Vowels were not written so we only have the consonant skeleton of each word and we can never know how they were said. Rxt is spelled out in several different ways. One uses the mouth sign (r) over a placenta sign (kh) followed by the semicircular loaf (t) over the rolled papyrus determinative for abstract words. (MORE)
