Horus falcon Painting by Ginger Strivelli
Horus is the egyptian God of the Sky.
He is falcon headed often cronwned with the crowns of Egyptian Kings. He is worshipped as the God of hunting, and of war.
He looks ready for war I think in His statue here with my daughter, Sybilsue at the Temple of Hathor in Dendara, Egypt.
Horus is shown as a man with a falcon head, at times as well such as this art on one of the walls of the temple of Edfu.
Horus is the son of Isis and Osiris, and the husband of Hathor.
The Eye of Horus charm is one of the most magical Egyptian symbols. On this painting of mine it is the top hieroglyph, used here to mean 'behold' or watch.
In the invocation; "Behold, the Splendor of the perfect Sun God Ra forever."
It is used as a protection charm as Horus is said to watch over us through those eye charms.
In my home in Luxor Egypt, I designed the ironwork on the front stained glass door to be Hathor and Horus.
