Horus is the god of prohecy, protection, retribution, revenge, success, and the sun. He is the son of Isis and Osiris, magically conceived after Osiris' death. Horus' sacred animals are bears, bulls, crocodiles, falcons, hawks, horses, mongeese, lions, shrews, sphinxes, and wolves. All red stones are sacred to him, especially rubies, and his sacred herb is Horehound. He was originally worshiped in the Nile Delta, and is the synthesis of several earlier hawk deities. Horus is identified with the living Pharoah. His opposite (and nemesis) is Seth. The ancient Egyptians believed that the sun was Horus' right eye, and the moon was his left. The stars are the speckles on his chest.
In art, Horus usually appears as either a falcon with a crown or as a falcon-headed man. He also sometimes carries weapons or with his talons grasping the back of an oryx to signify his trimph against Seth. Horus may also appear as a falcon-headed crocodile.
During Pre-Dynastic times, Horus appeared as a solar disc with wings.
