Being a Bird

You can tell me apart from my uncle, Horus the Elder, when we're in bird form because I keep my crown on. Also, I always wear the double crown (white and red), and sometimes my uncle just wears the white one. [Statue at Edfu Temple, Late Period (ca. 200 BCE). Photograph 2008, IJA.] (tagged: Horus the Younger, Horus son of Isis (Harsiese), Horus the Child (Harpocrates))
