THE LIFE AND DEATH OF MUMMY BROWN
Mummy Brown was a remarkable pigment that had its origins in ancient Egypt and became popular in European painting from about the sixteenth century. To many people’s surprise, shock, or even disgust, it was exactly what its name implied – a rich brown pigment made primarily from the flesh of mummies. The story of its rise and eventual fall from grace is a strange one, and to fully understand it we must first appreciate the extraordinary way in which Egyptian mummies came to be used – and abused – in the Christian West.

More surprising than the fact that 16th to 19th century artists used ground up mummies to paint with, is the fact that ‘Mummy powder’ was also consumed for healing purposes.

One of the most important of life´s lessons is to learn independence, to understand freedom. This means independence from attachments, from results, from opinions, and from expectations. Breaking attachments leads to freedom, but breaking attachments does not mean abandoning a loving and meaningful relationship, a relationship that nourishes your soul. It means ending dependency on any person or thing. Love is never a dependency.
