the Solar Orb spreading His rays, flanked at left and at right by two images of the Goddess Neith in Her form of vulture and by two uraei both wearing the White Crown. Detail from the Netherworld Papyrus of Gautsoshen; ca. 1000–945 BCE, now in the Metropolitan Museum…
I drew Neith today by accident-ish. But it was fun and makes me feel good. I was trying to use drawing as a way to focus on the Scarlet Woman since I’m reading Apophis and having a difficult time focusing on her. The outcome was not the intended, however, it’s very loved.
Following on from my previous Chinese Pantheon Map, the Egyptian one! The Egyptian pantheon is actually incredibly complex in that, while it fits or more standard family-tree structure than the Chinese Smite pantheon, there’s a lot of variation in the mythology.
Many of the Egyptian gods are at times considered aspects of other gods or feature in different places or are married to or born from different people thanks to an incredibly long time period and a wide degree of localisation of worship.
It is, for example, possible to consider Ra his own great-granddad. Sort of.
