HORUS EGYPTIAN ART PRINT
Heru was one of the most important and ancient deity of Kemetic gods. His name Heru means “The One Far Away” and commonly was known as Har or Horus. Heru was originally the Sky God, but he is also known as War God, Hunter’s God, God of Kingship and others.
He played the role as the protector of the ruler of Kemet. His appearance portrayed as a hawk headed man, holding scepter and ankh and wearing a white and red colored crown. The white and red colors represent Upper Kemet and Lower Kemet.
Sometimes he is also shown as a hawk, a lion with the head of a hawk or a hawk resting on the neck of the pharaoh. During the pharaoh’s reign, they identified themselves with Heru and the Kemite believed that Heru has manifested in human form.
Heru was the son of Aset and Asar. Heru fought with Set for the throne of TamaRe after his father Asar was murdered by his brother Set. He lost one of his eyes during the battle. But it was healed by Tehuti, the Neter of Wisdom. Heru won the battle, cast Set out into the desert and then he became the ruler of the world of the living.
