Cheetah in Ancient Egypt

- -

Because, according to old Egyptian knowledge, the cheetah was a significant animal in ancient Egypt, since it was employed as a depiction of the high priest to signify his strength and might. While visiting ancient Egyptian temples, you may see a man dressed in cheetah skin standing in the midst of the people, recognizable by his powerful image supplied by the skin he wears.

Due to its speed, fitness, and light muscles, the cheetah is the fastest land mammal and also the finest hunter. The cheetah is naturally equipped for hunting; with its fixed claws that are ready 24 hours a day, the cheetah is regarded as the finest hunter animal ever! The Ancient Egyptians were aware of this, and because the High Priest was the most powerful man in the political system (often even more powerful than the monarch), he was granted cheetah skin as his official dress code.
