The ancient Egyptians used the scared Egyptian Blue Color in their pictorial writings and expressions. They used the scared Egyptian Blue color paint in their paintings and yes in their scared Tombs and Temples. We now know that when you shine red light on the Egyptian Blue paint, it emits an infrared light. No other color known to man has this quality. That's why the ancient Egyptians created and used that color because it was dynamic or it represented a living entity. Ancient societies unsuccessfully tried to reproduce the Egyptian Blue color but could not due to the highly sophisticated chemical process. In 1930 or earlier, the late great Dr. George Washington Carver successfully recreated or reproduced that scared Egyptian Blue color.. The question is why did Carver have the desire to re-create the ancient Egyptian Blue color? Elements 4 Nature's conclusion is that Carver knew the ancient Egyptians were his Black African ancestors and he wanted to find a way to share that information with the rest of his Black African ancestors currently living in the United States. The DNA that was in the ancient Egyptians is the same DNA in every Black man and woman living in the United States. Carver proved that in an indirect way by re-creating the Egyptian Blue color.
The front of this shirt is the image design that was used by Elements 4 Nature during the Professional Poster competition at Tuskegee University's annual Agriculture conference 2017. The back of the shirt design was taken from the ancient Egyptian concept of the weighing of the heart ceremony. The ancient Egyptians believed that in order to enter into the afterlife, your heart had to be light and balanced with the feather of truth. You gained a light heart by doing good deeds during your lifetime.
