An Egyptian ankh necklace
In Egyptian mythology’s family three, Horus is the son of the goddess Isis and of the perfect god Osiris sent on Earth by the supreme god Ra to reign with excellence over humanity.
Horus was born shortly after that his father Osiris was killed, cut into 14 pieces and thrown into the Nile river by his brother, the god of chaos Set. Fearing that Set would kill her son to eliminate with great ease the legitimate heir of the throne of Egypt, Isis threw the child into a papyrus basket in the northern Nile Delta, hoping that someone would find and raise the child.
And this is what happened: Horus was found by Thoth, the particularly friendly god with a head of ibis who raised Horus by teaching him everything he has to know to became able one day to take over the throne of his father. It is Horus who kills Set. Indeed, when he was old enough to face Set, Horus was able to restore the peace and prosperity damaged by the chaotic and despotic reign of the god Set.
A pendant from ancient Egypt
The god Horus is always represented as a falcon or as a human with a falcon's head. According to the archaeologist Richard H. Wilkinson, this falcon is inspired of the Falco Peregrinus which has lived in ancient Egypt, 3500 ago. As a hawk, Horus is often endowed with royal attributes as the héqa scepter or as the red and white Egyptian crown called Pschent.
More rarely, Horus also has a Sun disk on his head: this version of Horus represents the god under its form of Ra-Horus, a version of the hawk god which depicts him as the Sun god of Egypt.
