Little Egypt

The God Horus

Egyptian Sky God usually depicted as a falcon or in human form with the head of a falcon. The sun and moon are said to be his eyes. Horus avenged the death of his father by the hand of Seth. Horus lost his left eye (the moon) in the contest between the two. The Egyptian pharaoh was believed to be an incarnation of Horus, and the name of Horus formed part of his name. The image of the "Eye of Horus", a human eye combined with the cheek markings of a falcon, became a powerful amulet among the Egyptians.
