Ancient Egyptian Gods


Seth was depicted as a strange creature that seems to be a composite of various animals like a giraffe, camel, ant eater or okapi.

He was the Egyptian god of storms and chaos.

Out of jealousy, Seth murdered his brother Osiris, the ruler of Egypt.

He tricked Osiris into lying down inside an expensive chest, with the promise that it would be his, if he could fit inside it.

With Osiris in position, Seth's collaborators nailed the lid shut and threw him into the Nile to drown.

Isis, the devoted wife of Osiris, searched for and found the chest which held Osiris' body.

Seth was so furious when she discovered his brother's body that he cut it into fourteen pieces and scattered them throughout the land.
