Nice picture of Lord Horus.

Guest's picture

Horus is not the sun god he is the god of kingship. Amen-Re is the sun god

My name is not Horus, because I am not Greek. I am Heru, from Kemet (land of the black) also known as Egypt(Greek)...The greeks came to us for education, so stop calling me and my land by a greek translated name... Also I am DARK SKINNED.

Guest's picture

Ok, my name is not Horus, because I am not GREEK! It is African, my name is Heru and I am from Kemet(land of the black) also known as Egypt... Therefore, this image is false, a fantasy..

Guest's picture

why is he white...wouldnt he have dark skin??? if infact this was going to be a picture of horus.

Osiris was originally the divine living king but was murdered by his jealous brother Seth and later ressurected by the magic of Isis and Nephtys who were Osiris and Seths wives respectivly. Osiris became the ruler of the dead. Osiris had a son named Horus who later defeated Seth and claimed the title of the divine living king.

Horus is represented as a falcon, but is not necessarily the god of the sun OR the god of the sky. The title of goddess of the sky belongs to Nut.

Horus is sometimes represented with the sun god Ra in a dual god form known as Ra-Horakhty which means "Ra- Horus of the Horizon". This is possibly where the mix up occured.

(Just took an exam on this today).

too light-skined...apart from that little flaw: nice pic!!

Guest's picture

THis is a very interesting picture. very creative. nice job

Guest's picture

um not too be rude or anything but "Ra" is actually the sun god and "Horus" is the god of the sky, but i like it tons!!

Guest's picture

ra is the sun god

Guest's picture

Beautiful work and an excellent color, I have to correct you, Horus was the god of Kings. (which is why in ancient Egypt, the Pharaohs, in their theocratic government, were viewed (durning the cult of Amun-Re) as the mortal embodiment of Horus.

Hello, I have been rather in love with this image for quite some time now and I was wondering if you ever sell the originals or evEn a large scale print?

Guest's picture

Guest's picture

this is wonderful

Guest's picture

Ra is the sun god, horus is the god of paraohs, and of protection

Guest's picture

this looks wonderfull, i havent seen many who can paint/draw this great. i can se the tarot card, it should be there.

p.s. Horus wanst the sun god, Ra was. Horus is the god of heavens

Guest's picture

nice sun god Horus most people don't know what he really stands for

Guest's picture

WOW I'm amazed by your art! you are very talented and gifted.
but may i say Horus was/is not the god of the sun, Ra /Re is. Horus is the god of wrath and the son of Osiris and Isis. Both Ra and Horus (and even Chons(moon god)) are nevertheles shown with the head of an eagle Wink

Guest's picture

You must of practiced a lot. I love it. I wish i could do that

Guest's picture

Nice Picture. It's amazing

Guest's picture

horus is the sky god

Guest's picture

cool

Guest's picture

that is so cool but freaky---i love it!

Guest's picture

horus was not the sun god. that was amun ra. horus was his son.
not meaning ANY disrespect there but thats how it is.

Guest's picture

hello there. your work is awsome. ill need your picture for a project im doning on egyptian gods. its only fair if i help you back (horus isnt the god of sun. Hes the god of wind. Ra is the god of sun) :/ well thanks for the picture. ill be sure to talk about your work when i present my project Smile

Guest's picture

wow, this is a very very wonderful drawing. This is exactly how i pictured Horus. I'd love to see more of your paintings. Again, this is a great masterpiece!

Uhm... I think you should make a new headline... Ra is God of the Sun... Horus id the God of the sky, of light and Guard of the Pharaohs tombs... Hope I didn't offend you, love the picture though, very beautiful

Guest's picture

Very good colors with this piece. But the name isn't quite right. Horus wasn't the sun god, Ra was that, Horus was the sky god. He was the demi ruler of night and day. But thiis is still a very good representation of him.

I am either productive or obsessed--sometimes there is a fine line between the two. My output is also due to deadlines. But it is work of passion, so I'm not counting the number of paintings that I'm doing...I just go with the flow and paint with an eagerness that satiates my internal callings. But as I write this, I am taking a week or two off--first time in a while. Well, if that doesn't count sketching ideas in my sketchbook. Thank you for the compliment, Christopher!

Art at its best.
