The figure of Auset with the child Heru on her lap, shows splendid African workmanship rich in detail. The divine mother sits on her throne. The sides of the throne display woven patterns and the traditional motif of the unification of the Two Lands (Kemet and ancient Egypt). The NTRt wears anklets and armbands in addition to a close-fitting dress and uraeus diadem. The small Heru figure wears the Double Crown. But even here African Nubian details can be recognized.
Auset is the wife of Ausar, and daughter of the rulers Nut and Geb. She is the twin sister of Nebthet – the wife of Ausar’s brother Set. She represents a co-ruler and ideal wife. After receiving Heru, she also represents the ideal mother. She is offering her breast to her son Heru, who was born a King. Heru is shown with a side lock and nude, to indicate he was a child.
NTRt Nut is the sky goddess, and her daughter Auset is the Star System Sirius. The star system Sirius is the brightest star system in our night sky, as Auset had a very powerful influence over the affairs of Earth. Auset is an extremely wise and divine Goddess. She gave her husband Ausar the wisdom to make the best decisions leading to growth and prosperity for all the people in and outside Kemet. With Auset and Ausar helping the people, they were able to make huge leaps of progress.
There are many stories about Auset, but the most famous story is about how Auset and Ausar refounded Kemet (Nubia, Nile Valley, Lower and Upper Egypt). Ausar was a great king to the land, and helped many people learn how to grow crops and prosper. Because Ausar helped so many people he was very known and loved by the people. Not so Ausar’s brother Set, who became jealous. Set trapped and killed Ausar, and dismembered the body.
Auset worked hard to find Ausar’s fourteen body parts. She re-membered thirteen parts of his body, anointed him and created the first mummy in the history of humanity. Her love and magic aided to bring Ausar back to life spiritually. After his resurrection, Auset reconnected with Ausar, and received Heru. This is why our ancestors say that Auset is a virgin mother. She only had spiritual intercourse to produce her son Heru. Later Heru would vanquish usurper Set, meet with Ausar in heaven, and take over the throne to restore divine order to Kemet.
This myth describes the forces of destruction that initiated the process of mummification in Kemet. The love of Auset for Ausar to produce Heru, is symbolic of regeneration and the promise of eternal life. The cycle of destruction, death and rebirth was repeated each year in the annual flood of the Nile and other rivers that provided the essential ingredients needed to sustain life, giving birth to latter civilizations.
