Now I finally know... by Sahtori-Kamaya Now I finally know... by Sahtori-Kamaya
Sahtori is holding the "Shen" symbol from Ancient Egypt (the symbol the Ba soul holds) it means "Eternal Protection" 

Those who read Oasis know what this means. :) 

BA: I, I know the way how, I'll melt away now, 
I know the way. 
I'm feeling bliss now, dissolved to mist, how strangely I go away. 
Now I finally know.....

(I'll scrap it later)

I'm strangely obsessed by half of this animation, when the first born of the King turns into a mummy, making his 'Ba' (the human headed bird) appear and fly with the 'Shen' (means eternal protection) in it's claws flying to the underworld. Nina Paley really did an amazing job. I feel so sad watching this and I don't know why. The music is beautiful and I love how she animated the Ancient Egyptians, it's just, strangely I don't know why I feel so sad watching/listening this over and over. I think it's gorgeous.

My favorite part is around 3.05 min into the animation, like I wrote above, give it a watch...

That is really interesting to know, I have been fascinated by the Ancient Egypt stuff, mainly their gods, which one of my favorites has to be Anubis :D.

I love the way the picture was done, the style used here is fantastic, I think it is good and a nice idea too.

I must say that this is quite the foreshadowing.  I just adore the symbolism here.
