Creepy Crawly
This is kind of what I look like in scarab form. I dare you to find me. [British Insects by Stavely, 1873]


The Lion King
Yeah, I'm a little fiercer than Simba when I'm in my lion form. [Lion by Eugene Delacroix, 1848-1850]


Rise Up
I popped right up out of this watery goodness. [NASA, Nile.]


My Baby Girl
Here's my only daughter, Tefnut, making her daddy proud. She's weighing human hearts in the afterlife. Awww! [The Weighing of the Heart from the Book of the Dead of Ani. Tefnut.]


All in the Fam
My handsomely green great-grandson, Osiris. He's king of the dead; ironic, considering I created people. [The god Osiris receiving offerings, Hieratic Book of the Dead of Padiamenet]


This Is What It's All About
This is why I created the world—so my descendants would rule. Horus, my great-great-grandson, did me proud. [Statue of Horus at the Temple of Horus in Edfu, July 20, 2011.]
