Battle for the Throne by Red-Flare Battle for the Throne by Red-Flare
I've been working on this piece for over a month. :faint: Partly because I was still in the process of fixing my laptop, & partly because I kept putting it off. It's actually a project for my special studies class.

It portays Horus fighting Seth for the right to the throne, while Osiris, Isis, & Nephthys watch the battle. Osiris is Horus's father & Seth's brother, Isis is Horus's mother, Nephthys is Seth's Wife and Isis's sister. It's a big old family affair. ;)

Actually, it's close.
The first known homosexual couple is egyptian.
Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum were their names.

They actually fight with both :rofl:
I can imagine Seth insulting Horus when fighting by telling him "I admit you fight much better than you fuck."

Dysfunctional family. It seems like every pantheon of gods and goddesses have huge family problems. :( (Sad)

Well there isn't many writing left from ancient egypt. You can find a description on Wikipedia or another wiki page.
For the official writing you need a book.

What animal represents Seth anyway?

Seth is probably an aardvark (or orycteropus), a desert insect-eating mammalian with long ears and a long nose.
Reply
:iconburnning-devil21:
Burnning-devil21 Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
but aardvarks are harmless, they eat ants and termites, not exactly the best animal representative of all things bad and apocalyptic
