was a man with a falcon's head. In most drawings, he was show as a contributor. He would either be holding both his hands out in a giving fashion, or he would be leading someone by their hand. In some cases Horus was also portrayed only as a falcon, not human. He was usually show wearing a large elaborate hat, symbolizing seer of both upper and lower Egypt. Horus was commonly shown with a sun or moon on top of his head; this is because many people associated the sky with the sun and moon.
Horus was one of the first pre-eminent divine beings. The hieroglyph representing the word for "god," was the picture of a falcon perched on a branch. Horus is extremely well known for his eyes. Many Egyptians wrote that his eyes were the sun and moon of the world. There is a story telling why the moon shines so much dimmer than the sun. It had to do with Osiris's death. When Set killed Osiris, Horus fought Set, so that Set could not become the overall leader of Egypt. In this battle of the gods, it was known that Set gouged out Horus's eye "the moon." This made him not be able to see through, and there for the moon was forever dimmer.
Horus is the son of Osiris, and Isis. Some believe he had a brother Anubis. His Mother Isis told him to be the protector of Egypt after the death of his father Osiris. Horus battled with Set for all of Egypt, Horus eventually won. Horus had four sons (For more go to Four sons of Horus).
