Horus

 

Horus

Horus was depicted as a falcon.

A falcon was the perfect symbol for the Egyptian god of the sky, light and goodness who soared above and protected the land of the Pharaohs.

It was believed that each Pharaoh became Horus on Earth and was reborn as Horus after their death.

In a battle which lasted 80 years, Horus conquered Seth, the god of Upper Egypt, to revenge the murder of his father, Osiris.
