Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities of ancient Egypt. The original form of Horus was that of a falcon or hawk. His right eye was the sun or morning star, representing power and quintessence and his left eye was the moon or evening star, representing healing. He was a solar deity, considered a manifestation of the pharaoh in the afterlife.
Horus was the son of Isis. He had been sired by the dead Osiris and hidden on the island of Chemmis by his mother. The goddess Wadjet, the protector of Lower Egypt, stayed on the island as a serpent to keep watch over the child and his mother. Horus suffered many assaults while still a child but survived to attack Seth in vengeance for the death of his father, Osiris. He was victorious.
