The Egyptian vulture was not only sacred to Egyptian culture and protected by the Pharaohs, but also represents the letter “A” in Egyptian hieroglyphs. Death was the punishment for killing this sacred bird, as it was linked to motherhood and purity. Ancient Egyptians revered the vulture as an animal who understood the real meaning of life and death- death of one meant life for another - and was worn as a protective talisman.
