"Moses and the Messengers from Canaan," Giovanni Lanfranco, 1621 - 1624. Oil on canvas. J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, California | In the Old Testament story (Numbers 13:1-27), Moses sent spies into Canaan to determine whether the land bore fruit. Lanfranco depicted these spies as they returned, laden with grapes, pomegranates, and figs as signs of the plenty of the Promised Land. Laying the ample harvest at Moses' feet, they reported, "surely it floweth with milk and honey."
Geb was originally the god of the earth(of the valleys and the hills), but later he became a god of the dead as representing the earth wherein the deceased was laid.Also known as Aker, Seb, Keb, Kebb or Gebb) (La déesse de la terre était Kishar chez les babyloniens)
The Sacred Cubit (aka Royal Cubit), which was a standard cubit enhanced by an extra span—thus 7 spans or 28 digits long—was used in constructing buildings and monuments and in surveying in ancient Egypt. The inch, foot, and yard evolved from these units through a complicated transformation not yet fully understood. Some believe they evolved from cubic measures; others believe they were simple proportions or multiples of the cubit.
