Storyboard Text

  • At first there was just dark water with no use or purpose. The god of magic Heka sat waiting the moment of creation.
  • Out of the dark water the first hill rose. It was known as the Ben-Ben. On top of the Ben-Ben stood Amun-Ra. He became very lonely and mated with his own shadow to gave birth to Shu(who was spat out) and Tefnut(who was thrown up).
  • Shu gave the world early principles of life and Tefnut gave principle of order. Soon, Shu and Tefnut left their father to go create and establish the world. The longer his children were gone the more Amun-Ra became concerned. To find them, Amun-Ra sent out his eye.
  • Shu and Tefnut followed Amun-Ra's eye back to the Ben-Ben. Seeing his children again, Amun-Ra became overcome with happiness and cried tears of joy. When these tears hit the ground of the Ben-Ben gave birth to men and women.
  • Since the men and women had no where to live, Shu and Tefnut mated giving birth to Geb(the Earth) and Nut(the Sky). Although Geb and Nut were siblings, they fell deeply in love and could not  be seaparated. This angered Amun-Ra, so he separated them. He sent Nut high up into the heavens. The two could still see each other, but could no longer touch.
  • However, Nut was already pregnant by Geb. She gave birth to Osiris, Isis, Set, Nephthys, and Horus. Osiris was a very caring and fair god. He was giving the rule of the world by Amun-Ra who went off to attend to his own affairs.
