In Ancient Egypt gold represented the flesh of the gods, the fire and glory of the sun, and the very idea that the luster of the gold was never lost, therefore an eternal sense of being. Gold was considered by the ancient Egyptians to be a divine and indestructible metal. It was associated with the brilliance of the sun.
