Wepwawet Photos

First in Line
My standard always gets to go in front of the other standards and banners. It's great to be first. [Drawing of a Wepwawet standard, probably from a temple relief. Drawing ca. 1849 by Karl Richard Lepsius, in Denkmaler aus Aegypten und Aethiopien.Scan 2008 by Tedmek.]


Hanging with Horus
Hori and his friend carry our standards to a temple party. Of course, I'm in front! [Photograph of two priests carrying Wepwawet and Horus standards from the tomb of Hori in Luxor, Egypt.

Nice Doggie!
The North African Jackal is my symbol. Isn't he cute? [Photograph from The living animals of the world by C. J. Cornish, et al., 1902.Scan 2010 by Mousse.]


Be There With Bells on
Even the Romans in Egypt liked me. Check out this awesome statue they made, with a shiny bell for my neck. [Photograph of a Wepwawet statue, Greco-Roman period, probably 4th Dynasty CE. Photo 2002 by Greudin. Uploaded 2009 by Korribot.]
