Continuing along in the Epagnomel Days, after Heru's birthday, it is now Set's birthday (aka Sutekh).


For inspiration, I've taken from two different statues of Set, the bronze statue at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and the granite statue at the Cairo museum. (Credit given to the various photographers at the link pages)

"As son of the two men, however, Thoth is preeminently the mediator who ends the contention. Yet this work of Thoth must be confirmed by greater gods. Thoth's name may even be passed over. In spite of the part played by Thoth in the "Contendings of Horus and Seth" it is Re, the lord of the universe, who divides the universe: Horus becomes king of the earth and Seth god of thunder in heaven." (TeVelde, Seth, God of Confusion, page 61)

In Thutmose III's Heb Seb scene, we can see the glyphs for "Lord of Heaven" directly above Set's ears.
