Burial practice and mortuary rituals in ancient Egypt were taken so seriously because of the belief that death was not the end of life. Each period of ancient Egypt witnessed an alteration in the various organs preserved. The individual who had died could still see and hear, and if wronged, would be given leave by the gods for revenge. The Mummification Process. The heart, for example, was preserved in some eras, and during the Ramessid dynasties the genitals were surgically removed and placed in a special casket in the shape of the god Osiris. This was performed, perhaps, in commemoration of the god's loss of his own genitals or as a mystical ceremony.
From whatever cause, this clinging to the dead body grafted itself on a religion in many ways beautiful and profound, causing deaths to be celebrated with infinitely greater lustre than nativities; producing one of the strangest arts in history, and some of the most grotesque anomalies. The Ba, the soul of the dead, could not survive unless the Ka, the vital spark, was nourished in the tomb, and the body preserved to house it.
