Egyptian Horus Falcon - Statue - $52.99

Horus was known as God of the Sky and Sun in Ancient Egypt, and refers to two separate deities of Ancient Egyptian Religion: Horus the Elder (Heru-ur) and Horus the Younger (Heru-pa-khart), as well as a number of minor deities. The original form of Horus is thought to be God of the Sky - his name meaning 'high' or 'distant'. He was seen as a great falcon with large outstretched wings, whose right eye was the sun and left eye was the moon. One of his sky-god forms was 'Nekheny', meaning 'he of Nekhen' or Hierakonopolis.

Since the Falcon God Horus was said to be the sky, he was considered to also contain the Sun and Moon. They traversed the Egyptian sky when Horus, as a falcon, flew across it. Horus became known as Harmerty - 'Horus of two eyes'. The Ancient Egyptian explanation for the sun shining brighter than the moon was explained by a tale known as the contestings of Horus and Set, which was a metaphor for the conquest of Lower Egypt by Upper Egypt around 3000 B.C. It was said that Set, the patron of Upper Egypt, and Horus, the patron of Lower Egypt, engaged in a battle for control of Egypt. Neither side was victorious, until eventually the deities sided with Horus.

Cold Cast is a modern method of casting sculptures using a mixture of resin and powdered polymer materials. The finished sculpture has a surface which looks very similar to traditionally cast material, but tends to be much lighter.
