Statue
Mar 5 2009, 3:32 AM EST | Post edited: Mar 5 2009, 3:32 AM EST
Wasn't seeing the statue from the back cool? What did it remind you of? I know that it is the statue with the four toes, To bad we didn't see it from the front. My theory is that through out the years the island was once part of a mainland. But during storms, earthquakes and volcano erruptions, the island broke off from the mainland. I feel the statue was there to let other tribes know who owned the land they were about to lay anchor in the water. Could it have been astec? With the moving of the island it could have been from anywhere. Any other thoughts? 3  out of 3 found this valuable. Do you?

I think the staue is Anubis
a god associated with death. He was a jackal headed god, one of several, but the one gaining most popularity and importance in the Egyptian religion. He was a guide to the dead and also was part of the judgment of the dead. During the Opening of the Mouth ceremony and mummification, priests often wore masks representing Anubis.

Anubis was originally a local god of an area in Upper Egypt. Anubis was prayed to as a god of the dead in the Old Kingdom. In the middle Kingdom he became credited with helping Isis embalm her husband Osiris. In all, Anubis played a large role in the very important afterlife of the Egyptians.

This is the article about Anubis on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anubis

There are some similarities between the image shown on Wikipedia and what we have seen on Lost. Too bad we only saw the statue from behind.

As said above, Anubis does have to do with the afterlife and the underworld. The heiroglyphics in the Swan when the timer reaches 0 is supposed to mean "Underworld".

I didn't see the front of the statue. I taped it so I could look at it again tonight. It appears to me to be from the back a lions head with a main. The ears are up top, and there is a main. It does have a rope - more like a whip (I feel) and it has a crown on it's head. Also, cats have only four toes. It could have been from Egypian times, but I feel it was from the time of the Aztec.

#1 Lost --- there is another statue, which is an Egyptian Goddess, "Tawart" It is a female and represents a pregnant woman. I have seen naked ones, sitting and clothed ones standing. All have a lion type head with crown and mane.

On National Geogrphic Channel there was a special on the Mayans and how advanced they were. There were several different images there and statues as well. I have seen a picture with Faraday looking up at a Mayan pryamid. Could have been a fake picture, but it was interesting. That is the place where the ancient astronaut theory comes from besides a few places in the Bible, which I can't remember where they are - even after 4 years of Disciple Bible Study.

Anibus never wore clothing. He only wore a wrap, to show off his strength by showing his muscles. Also, Anibus never wore a crown, and he did not have a mane. Anibus is also dark black, made out of marble - not stone. There is another statue, a Goddess from the Egyptian era, called "Tawart" She represented firtility, and she had a long mane and wore a crown. But I would also check out the Mayan era - there were plenty of Gods they made statues of then. Do you find this valuable?

WRONG!!!!!!! here is a ancient depiction of Anubis wearing a crown and clothes considering the islands resources they may have built him out of stone look at this pic it blowes your theory out of the water!!!!!!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:VaticanMuseums_Egyptian_God_Statue.jpg

That statue doesn't have a mane,it has a common linen or silk head dress under his crown, which was common for Egyptian royalty.
here is another depiction of Anubis with that head dress
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Anubis_standing.svg

The statue is holding an ankh so that rules out it being anything but Egyptian.

Plus you spelled her name wrong; it's Taweret, and she was such a minor goddess? why would they build such a great statue to her? If they where going to build a statue to a goddess of fertility of more likely would have been Mut who did not have dog ears.
as seen in the links below

OK dihoos --- I still don't believe it is Anubis. Anubis was the god who watched over the embalment of someone. And watch over the tumb. The statue is a woman, but it is Egyptian. Try Isis. This seems logical. Read all of the following. http://www.goddessgift.com/goddess-myths/egyptian_goddess_Isis.htm Do you find this valuable?

I still don't believe the statue is Anubis. I understand what type of God Anybis was, he even watched over the husband of the goddess I propose the statue to be "Isis." I feel the statue is female. And if you look up Isis, you will see that her first son was Horus. Read it all.

If it is a female then I agree that is more likely to be Isis the giver of life rather than a fertility goddess. Considering the dead come back to life on the island.


BUT it's still not Isis, why -- DOG Ears!!!!!! Plus humans don't have four toes but jackals do!!!!!

Plus Every pic I've seen of Isis She is wears a long dress down to hear ankles that comes only up to expose her breats, and most of the show her sitting breast feeding a baby.

We are having this discussion cuz it's fun and interesting.Plus you posted the thread so you need to be open to criticism for your very well thought out ideas in the pursuit of truth and knowledge

Maybe it's both Anubis and Isis
check out this pic depicting both..... she's a pro

http://www.sexualfables.com/Isis-and-Aphrodite.php

After Seeing this I'm kinda hoping it's Isis, But I don't remember her doing this to John Locke or Christian Shephard....... Maybe We will see this in the next episode.

After seeing lots of interest in people trying to explain their theory on who the statue is, I have added a poll regarding the identity of it. You can find it in the Lost Poll Page section. If you think I'm missing someone, just say so, and I'll add edit the poll. I have added the following (in alphabetical order):
Anubis
Isis
Jacob
Richard Alpert
Taweret

I don't know who is right here but has anyone considered that maybe the foot doesn't belong to this statue? Based on the angle of the foot in the picture, it was taken exactly 180 degrees from the angle of the picture of the back of the statue. In the front view of the foot, you can see steep mountains immediately behind it. But from the rear of the statue there appears to be a long distance of level ground with very large trees immediately behind it. The foot statue appears to be at least 40 feet tall. If so, the trees must have been nearly 100 feet tall. Where did the trees go? And assuming something happened to the statue to cause it to crumble, where is the debris? There are no remnants laying around the foot. If the debris had time to decompose into nothingness, why didn't the foot also decompose? If the well was nearly the same elevation as the statue which was on the beach, the bottom would have been filled with salt water and the magic wheel would not have been approachable.

I was just thinking the same thing, what must have happened is there must have been a tsunami desrtoying the statue and remember the egyptians lived thousands of years ago so the remains could have easily washed away or been buried in the sand in a that amount of time. Here is an even better question was their only one statue on the island. Do you find this valuable?

it couldn't be Aztec, their civilization was centered in central America, way far away from the south pacific. And most Islands rise FROM volcanoes, they don;t get broken
off because of them. So I just think the island is quite old and the first civilization there made the statue/

Don't forget that earthquakes make them break off too (California is in danger of just that.) Anyway, we had moved on and I had said it WAS probably Egyptian. However in the island constantly moving, many things could have happened. Read further, not just my first comment. 0  out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?
