An Egyptian ankh necklace
Horus (or "Hor-Hekenu") was the patron deity of the pharaohs and the symbol of kingship in ancient Egyptian mythology. He is almost all the time portrayed as a falcon-headed man.
Like many other ancient deities, the nature of Horus, as well as the stories and legends about him, have been constantly changing as history of Egypt has developed (let’s not forget that ancient Egypt’s era lasted 3500 years). The first Horus that we find in the history of Egypt can be seen as a merger of many small ancient gods associated with royalty, sky or parts of Egyptian territory (most of these small gods were Sun or sky gods).
A pendant from ancient Egypt
"Hor-Hekenu" (or "Horus, the ancient") is one of the earliest versions of Horus, who has been a hawk-headed god of creation. The two eyes of "Hor-Hekenu" represented the Sun and the Moon. When the new Moon appeared, "Hor-Hekenu" became blind and was called "Mekhenty-er-irty" (meaning "the sightless one").
When his sight was restored, he was called "Khenty-irty" (meaning "the sighted one"). In early Egyptian mythology, this primal form of Horus also implies that this creator god of the Sun is the father of Geb and Nut (respectively the deities representing the earth and of the sky).
