The moon not only provides light at night, allowing time to still be measured without the sun, but its phases and prominence gave it a significant importance in early astrology/astronomy. The cycles of the moon also organized much of Egyptian society's rituals and events, both civil and religious. Consequently, Thoth gradually became seen as a god of wisdom, magic, and the measurement and regulation of events and of time.He was thus said to be the secretary and counselor of the sun god Ra, and with Ma'at (truth/order) stood next to Ra on the nightly voyage across the sky. Thoth became credited by the ancient Egyptians as the inventor of writing (hieroglyphs), and was also considered to have been the scribe of the underworld. For this reason, Thoth was universally worshipped by ancient Egyptian scribes. Many scribes had a painting or a picture of Thoth in their "office". Likewise, one of the symbols for scribes was that of the ibis.During the late period of Egyptian history, a cult of Thoth gained prominence due to its main centre, Khmun (Hermopolis Magna), also becoming the capital. Millions of dead ibis were mummified and buried in his honour.Thoth was inserted in many tales as the wise counselor and persuader, and his association with learning and measurement led him to be connected with Seshat, the earlier deification of wisdom, who was said to be his daughter, or variably his wife. Thoth's qualities also led to him being identified by the Greeks with their closest matching god Hermes, with whom Thoth was eventually combined as Hermes Trismegistus, also leading to the Greeks' naming Thoth's cult centre as Hermopolis, meaning city of Hermes.Item Information:Height: 27.3 cm / 10.7 inchChest Width : 6.5 cm / 2.5 inchBottom Length: 6 cm / 2.3 inchObject: Egyptian StatueColor: As Shown in the PictureOrigin: EgyptCondition: Original ConditionShipping: DHL fast Shipping 4-12 days with track number - We Only Depend on the EXPRESS SHIPPINGItems Will Be Sent Out in 72 Hours After Your Payment Receiving.Payment:We Accept Paypal Only Feedback:Customer Satisfaction our main objective and we are always looking for the positive feedback from your respectful side.In case of dissatisfaction you are kindly requested to return the item with same condition to be replaced or refund the total payment.
