Horus, represented by the falcon, was the son of gods Isis and Osiris. The Kings of Egypt associated themselves with Horus and the hieroglyph which represented the idea of God was a falcon on its perch. A sun god, Horus was superior both physically and socially, representing the King and linking the sun and the moon, the two primary celestial beings. Horus was worshipped throughout Egypt, and so many cults proliferated that many myths sprang up associated with Horus. Throughout ancient Egyptian history, this god was personally identified with the king, as each succeeding pharaoh used the name of Horus as the first of his titles.
This beautiful Horus Falcon Statue is hand painted, made of cold cast resin.
