Kherty

Kherty is an Ancient Egyptian deity. Despite being archaeologically attested since the early 2nd dynasty, his original mythological role during this era is unclear. Kherty was an Egyptian god of the Duat; the earliest mythological descriptions of Kherty's role do not appear until the 6th dynasty in the Pyramid Texts.. The earliest depictions of Kherty appear during the early 2nd dynasty, under king Hotepsekhemwy and Raneb, he is shown as a mummified ram. In rare instances he was pictured as a lion; the figurine is always guided by the hieroglyphic signs of a shamble and a bread loaf, giving a reading as kherty. Kherty was worshipped since the early 2nd dynasty, his name appears first time on stone bowls of king Sneferka. Stone bowl inscriptions from the reign of king Peribsen mention first time the title "god servant of Kherty"; the main centre of the Kherty cult was located at Letopolis, a second cult centre was founded at Nesat. Kherty was a contradicting character: The pyramid texts reveal that he was worshipped at one side as a guide, who brought the deceased king safely to "the yonder site" by "being the ferryman".

He protected the deceased against various demons sent by Seth. The deceased king was brought to his destination by Ra. On the other site, Kherty was feared as death in persona, a god that "lives on the heart of men", making them stop pounding; the pyramid texts reveal that Kherty attacked the physical heart of the dying peoples, not the metaphysical, symbolic heart as the "seat of thoughts and feelings". For this reason, a lot of spells and prayers were addressed to Kherty in attempt to befriend and please him. Other prayers beg Ra to "take the deceased king away from Kherty"; these prayers mention Osiris, the judge of the underworld. Thus and Osiris were mythologically connected to each other. Kherty is not mentioned in the famous Coffin Texts of Middle Kingdom period. Instead, he is replaced by a god Aker, now the ferryman. In the prayers of the Book of the Dead, Kherty is described as a guard who guides the celestial bark of Ra

Lake Poinsett State Park

Lake Poinsett State Park is a 132-acre Arkansas state park on Crowley's Ridge in Poinsett County, Arkansas in the United States. The park was formed after the damming of Distress Creek to create a recreational lake in the county in 1960; the park is located along the western bank of the lake and is open for year-round for camping/picnicking. Boat rentals are available from February to November. Activists in Harrisburg and elsewhere in Poinsett County began efforts to obtain a recreational lake in their area in the 1950s, but their efforts were not successful due to a lack of funds; the idea was adopted by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, who made plans to dam Distress Creek as funds became available, but the money would not come through until former Arkansas highway commissioner Dan Portis discussed the plan with Arkansas governor Orval Faubus. The dam became a reality in 1960, was named for Poinsett County; the idea for a state park came from locals Richard Woods and L. K. Collier, who donated 40 acres of land toward a park.

Locals raised enough money to double the donation of land to the Arkansas State Parks and Travel Commission, who deemed the land big enough for a park and accepted the donation on June 21, 1963, making Lake Poinsett State Park the 20th state park in Arkansas. Fishers will find bass, bream and crappie in the lake's shallow waters; the park does not contain any other types of cabin or lodging. A pavilion with restrooms is available near the campsites. Park interpreters guide visitors along trail walks in addition to birding tours. Kayaking and canoe tours on the lake are guided by park interpreters seasonally; the Great Blue Heron Trail is a 1.1 miles hiking trail that beginning near the children's playground and winds in a loop through the woods. Picnic tables are scattered throughout the park in open areas. Four other state parks accompany Lake Poinsett State Park atop Crowley's Ridge: Crowley's Ridge State Park, Lake Frierson State Park, Parkin Archeological State Park, Village Creek State Park are all nearby.
