The pelican is associated in Ancient Egypt to the afterlife. It was believed to be a protective symbol. The pelican is referred to in the Pyramid Texts as the “mother of the king” and thus seen as a goddess. It was believed that the pelican possessed the ability to prophesy safe passage in the underworld.
