After discovering lots of facts about the sarcophagus and what they were during Anicent Egyptian times we drew our own designs.

A sarcophagus is a carved, usually a stone container that usually houses a coffin and an Egyptian mummy. The word ‘sarcophagus’ is derived from Greek words “sarx” meaning “flesh”, and “phagien” meaning “to eat” derived from a Greek word for “flesh-eating.

The name sarcophagus was eventually applied to stone coffins in general which were not sunk underground. The Egyptian interpretation of the word was the ‘possessor of life’ which related to the Egyptian beliefs of afterlife and rebirth.
