Horus the Falcon God

Creator: @akida
Horus Time... The sky god or simply a visitor from another world or dimension? In mythology Horus is well-known as the sky god, he was also believed to represent the sun and the moon. The Egyptians believed that the sun was his right eye and the moon was his left eye. Another legend tells about "The big war/ fight between Horus and Seth" being the reason why the moon does not shine as brightly as the sun. In this tale it was said that Seth, the patron of Upper Egypt, and Horus, the patron of Lower Egypt, had fought brutally over Egypt, neither of them winning at first, until the gods sided with Horus after all. Since Horus was thus the winner, he became known and translated as "Horus the Great" or "Horus the Elder". The battle was considered very brutal, as Set lost a testicle, and Horus' eye was gouged out. - Eye of Horus or also called Wedjat - The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of the protection and royal power of deities, in this case Horus or even Ra. Actually, it was once even the eye of one of the oldest Egyptian deities, Wadjet, who was later also associated with Bastet, Mut and Hathor. Wadjet was a sun deity, and this symbol was originally her all-seeing eye. Which is why the eye of Horus is also called Wedjat. Egyptian and Middle Eastern sailors even painted this symbol very often on the bow of their ship to ask for a safe sea journey. Read more
