Symbol of power and divine guidance.

Ra was the most important god in ancient Egypt. Ancient Egyptians believed that Ra created all the animal life on the planet by whispering their secret names. He created man from his tears and sweat. Ra is often pictured with a staff. The top of the staff resembles a gazelle and the bottom resembles a gazelle’s foot. It is a symbol of power and divine guidance.

The staff of Ra was also fictionalized and featured in the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. The headpiece to the staff of Ra was supposed to be a guide to the Ark of the Covenant. If someone held the staff correctly the sun would shine through the headpiece and lead the person to the burial site.
