16/36.- Abu Simbel, Abu Simbel Temple, Horus relief


Horus was a celestial god, son of Osiris and Isis. Osiris was the god of the underworld and of fertility. Isis was Osiris wife and sister. She had magical powers. She used this powers to bring back to life her husband and to safe his son, for this reason mothers who wanted to cure their sons worshiped her. Horus is the equivalent of Seth in Lower Egypt.

Seth was the god of chaos and the personification of evil. God of the wind, the rain, the storms and the thunder. His birth was really violent, he broke off his mother's belly. Not all aspects of this god are negative, he is also the god who kills the treacherous snake Apofis on the Ra solar boat.

We will now visit the temple of Queen Nefertari ...
