Colours( Or Colors in some cases) can have many different meanings. Whether it symbolical with certain figures in cultures to express
characteristics/attitudes, or even meant to express feelings in some cases.
A light red could be used to symbolize love, while a dark one could represent rage. While a Light blue could be used to feel cool or calm, while a
dark blue could represent sadness in some cases. One could view colour in anyway they wish really, and I do see it being used in religion quite
extensively. Hell, a nations pride, and expression usually based on a coloured flag for that matter.
Usually in religious cases, most figures are ether Gold, and Silver, ether meaning divinity, maybe even royalty in some sense, or just status.
Especially since Gold and Silver are valuable metals back then, as they are today.
Like Set and Osiris. Osiris is depicted with a green face, and white robes. In some cases, green could represent death, which in Osiris case makes
sense, since he is the God of the Underworld in Egypt. Then you look at Set, whom is of a black scheme, which kind of hints some thing secretive, or
something missing about the God of Chaos. Maybe this is because he more revered as villain in this case, where as Osiris is more popular.
Then there is Ra, whom is often depicted as Gold or Orange due to the connection the God has with the Sun. And again, Gold is usually a symbol of
status, where as Orange is a colour of communication(Btw, this just assumptions due to a website Im looking at). And Sun God are always the popular
one, hell just look at the Sun of God these days. Then there is Toth, whom was an adviser and counselor of the Gods, and his main scheme is blue,
which could be associated with knowledge and wisdom.
Now when looking at Hebrew myths, two colours do seem to go hand and hand. Red and white. Cherubs, Seraphims are often associated with Red or Gold(
which look great together anyways) which again could be a symbol of authority. Then there is Lucifer, whom is of a white scheme, which could represent
And the two colours do have some revelant meaning in Christianity, however, it has switched in other words. Im not gonna to indepth about, but how
Lucifer changed in depiction is a weird. The red devil, with a trident and hooves is said to be an image mocking the devil which slowly took over as
time went on.
And here my prove of it.
All the Angels fly on gold wings, while Death ride a pale Horse.( Srry just trying to sound bibically epic. Lmao)
Anyways, I hope the read was somewhat enjoyable since I did this out of boredom.
