Transcript of Horus- Egyptian god of the sky

HORUS EGYPTIAN GOD OF THE SKY Who is Horus? By Mary The ancient Egyptians believed that there are greater beings, the gods. Each god had a role in the their Egyptian life. One of these gods is Horus. One of the most important gods was Horus. Horus was the god of kings and so the Pharaoh was supposed to be his earthly embodiment. Kings took the name of Horus as one of his own.

As well as being god of the kings, he was also god of the sky. Since the Pharaohs followed Re, the sun god, Horus became associated with the sun as well. Horus was believed to be the son of Osiris, god of death, and Isis, the goddess of magic and queen of the gods. Osiris Isis Horus Appearance Horus is often shown as a hawk or a man with the head of a hawk wearing the crown of Egypt. These traits make him look similar to Ra, although Ra is crowned with the sun disk. Horus' crown is made of two parts. They represent Upper and Lower Egypt. The white part is the crown of Upper Egypt and the red part is the crown of Lower Egypt. Crown Of Upper Egypt Crown Of Lower Egypt The two crowns combined represent all of Egypt. Horus wears a double crown, meaning he ruled all of Egypt. Horus is often shown having the head of a hawk and a body of a man. Horus was worshipped in Egypt. Horus' story The Battle with Seth: Horus was conceived magically by Isis, following the death of his father, Osiris. Osiris' jealous brother, Seth had tricked Osiris and murdered him. After his father's death, Horus fought with his uncle Seth for the throne of Egypt. In this battle, Horus had one eye poked out by cruel Seth but that eye was restored to him. That eye became a symbol of protection for the Ancient Egyptians. This is known as The Eye of Horus. After the battle, Horus was chosen to be the ruler of Egypt. The Eye Of Horus The Eye of Horus was believed to have protective and healing powers, and is associated with rebirth. It is also a popular funerary amulet to give protection in the Next World. In a fight with Seth, Horus lost his left eye. Later on,Thoth, the God of magic and the moon, used his powers to reassemble Horus’s eye. It is told that while Horus's left eye is the moon, his right eye is the sun. The famous Eye of Horus is actually his left eye In a fight with Seth, Horus lost his left eye. Later on,Thoth, the God of magic and the moon, used his powers to reassemble Horus’s eye. It is told that while Horus's left eye is the moon, his right eye is the sun.

In the ancient Egyptian time, many Egyptians, including the Pharaoh himself, worshipped many great gods and goddesses. The gods lived lives that were very much like those of the people who worshipped them and had emotions like us humans. They died, fought, ate, drank, and also gave birth. Each god and goddess was associated with something, such as the sun, the Underworld, childbirth, and much more. One of the most important gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt was Horus, god of the sky. Horus was among the oldest gods and the most important too. As god of the kings, he will always be considered as one of the greatest gods in history.
