Many Novices Interested in This Theology at First See It as a Static Religion, but Indeed, Over Time and in Various Regions It Was Very Different. the Moon God Khonsu Illustrates This Fact, for His Earliest Attested Character Became Considerably Altered by the New Kingdom at Thebes (Modern Luxor), Where He Appears as the Benign Son of Amun and Mut.Yet in the Early Pyramid Texts, He Appears in the Well Known "Cannibal Hymn" (Utt. 173-4) as a Bloodthirsty Deity Who Assists the Deceased King in Catching and Slaying Those Gods That the King "Feeds Upon" in Order to Absorb Their Strength. Specifically, It Refers to Him as "Khonsu Who Slew the Lords, Who Strangles Them for the King, and Extracts for Him What Is in Their Bodies". Though Only Mentioned Once in the Pyramid Texts, He Is Also Referred to in Spell 258 of the Coffin Texts, Where He Is "Khonsu Who Lives on Hearts", and in Spell 310, Where He Is Capable of Sending Out "The Rage Which Burns Hearts". He Later Becomes Associated with Childbirth Prior to Becoming the Better Known God of the Theban Triad, Consisting of Amun, Mut and Himself.- Height: 13.38 Inch / 34 cm- Weight : 1802 gm Provenance:(Object Is Accompanied with an Scanned Copy of Certificate of Ownership)The New Certificate Of Ownership Which Contain All the Object Information And Previous Owner Information And Your Name As A New Owner Of The Object Will Be Sent to Your Email After 1 weekI Herewith Declare That the Object Was Purchased by Me in Egypt / Luxor City 1979 as a Part of Large Collection and Has Been in My Collection Since Then.I Warrant That the Object Is in the Same Condition as I Bought It from the Previous Owner and That There Is No Any Alterations of Any Kind(This Illustrated Certificate of Ownership Contain)Name & Hand-Signature of the Current OwnerPrevious & Current Owner Addresses / Contact InformationObject NameObject ConditionObject DimensionsObject Country / City of Origin Condition: Certified Pre-Owned (CPO), Provenance: Ownership History Available, Material: Stone, Object Type: Ancient Egyptian Historical Artifacts
