The Seba is the representation of star in Egyptian religious art. Patterned after a starfish, with five equidistant spokes, the seba was a symbol of the constellations, or star-gods. Enclosed in a circle, the seba represented the Duat, or otherworld, where the sun diappeared each night, and to which the souls of the dead ascended after death. The word seba means ‘learning’ or ‘discipline’ and is associated with doorways and gates.
