Hieroglyphics

Hello all

Does anyone have any knowledge of the Egyptian hieroglyph that looks exactly like a human ear? i have searched and searched on the internet and books in libraries for the meaning of this hieroglyph, but have yet to find any answers. or any ancient writings / stone reliefs including this symbol...

I have found the other hieroglyph of an ear shaped like a cow's ear that pertains to the actions of hearing and listening, yet i had a lucid dream specifically with a hieroglyph of a human ear, with other smaller hieroglyphs below and beside it.
i have found an image of the hieroglyph but it is a very small picture
http://hieroglyphs.net/0301/cgi/pager.pl?p=04b
its located in D parts of the body, and its code is D18.

if anyone knows what this symbol means please let me know i'd appreciate it very much...!

also if others have questions pertaining to hieroglyphics feel free to post your own questions here aswell

It is an ear. As you know, hyeroglyphs are mostly pictograms, and so they represent their image.

There are several stelae with ears on them, such as this one

And this one from the Drovetti collection in the Egyptian Museum of Turin:

The ears mean that the Gods are directly listening to the prayers, and so the stele with ears is seen as a sort of direct "portal" to the higher planes.

I hope this was helpful. Smile
