Ancient Egyptian Text, ca. 1800 BC

This fragmentary tale named its ghost Khentika. While we do not know the full story, we do know that often ghosts in Ancient Egypt appeared to ask people to remember them or to take care for their tombs. The Egyptian view of the afterlife meant that ghosts were more or less another step in life, rather than something to be feared or hated. This tinted balm shade is a dark orangey-brown, or a burnt orange shade, reminiscent of sandstone and the Sahara desert.
