Seller: luxor.stone (87) 100%, Location: Luxor, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 323140590720 ANCIENT EGYPT EGYPTIAN ANTIQUE STATUE HORUS FALCON GOD CARVED STONE 1400 BCInformation About This Item:The Name Horus Is Greek. in Ancient Egypt He Was Known as "Heru" (Sometimes Hor or Har), Which Is Translated as "The Distant One" or "The One on High"(from the Preposition "Hr" Meaning "Upon" or "Above"). He Was Considered to Be a Celestial Falcon, and So His Name Could Be a Specific Reference to the Flight of the Falcon, but Could Also Be Seen as a More General Solar Reference. It Is Thought That the Worship of Horus Was Brought into Egypt During the Predynastic Period.He Seems to Have Begun as a God of War and a Sky God Who Was Married to Hathor, but Soon Became Considered as the Opponent of Set, the Son of Ra, and Later the Son of Osiris. However, the Situation Is Confused by the Fact That There Were Many Hawk Gods in Ancient Egypt and a Number of Them Shared the Name Horus (Or More Specifically Har, Heru or Hor). Furthermore, the Gods Ra, Montu and Sokar Could All Take the Form of a Falcon. Each "Horus" Had His Own Cult Center and Mythology, but Over Time They Merged and Were Absorbed by the Most Popular Horus, Horus Behedet (Horus of Edfu).He Was the Protector and Patron of the Pharaoh. as Horus Was Associated with Upper Egypt (As Heru-Ur in Nekhen) and Lower Egypt (As Horus Behedet or Horus of Edfu) He Was the Perfect Choice for a Unified Country and It Seems That He Was Considered to Be the Royal God Even Before Unification Took Place. the Pharaoh Was Often Considered to Be the Embodiment of Horus While Alive (And Osiris Once He Was Deceased). the Turin Canon, Describes the Predynastic Rulers of Egypt as "The Followers of Horus", and the Majority of Pharaohs Had an Image of Horus at the Top of Their Serekh (A Stylised Palace Facade in Which One of the King´s Names Was Written).However, Sekhemhib (Seth Peribsen) Chose to Place Horus´ Opposite and Enemy Set on His Serekh While Khasekhemwy Placed Both Set and Horus Above His Serekh. as a Result, Some Scholars Argue That the Mythical Battle Between Horus and Set Was Once a Real Battle Between the Followers of Set and the Followers of Horus. If This Was the Case, It Would Seem That the Followers of Horus Won as Horus Remained a Popular Emblem of Kingship While Set Was Gradually Transformed into a Symbol of Evil. the Pharaoh Also Had a Name (Known as the "Golden Horus" Name) Which Was Preceded by an Image of a Sacred Hawk on the Symbol for Gold Which Specifically Linked the Pharaoh to the God. However, It Is Interesting to Note That Set Was Also Known as He of Nubt (Gold Town), So the Symbol for Gold Could in Fact Relate to Him.
