Tree of Life Papyrus Painting On the Tree Of Life, the birds represent the various stages of human life.  Infancy, childhood, youth, adulthood and maturity.  Each bird progressively gets larger with each phase.  Because every soul has significance on earth and purpose, the tree with fruits is depicted, ready to be harvested at each age of man. In ancient Egypt, the direction east was considered the direction of life, because the sun rose in the east. West was considered the direction of death, of entering the underworld, because the sun set in the west. They believed that during the night, the sun traveled through the underworld to make its way back to the east so it could rise in the east again on the next day.  On the tree of life, note that the birds representing the first four phases of life all face to the east, but the bird representing old age faces to the west, anticipating the approach of death.  The ancient Acacia tree, from which the first couple, Isis and Osiris are said in legend, to have sprang from.
