Among the oldest and most celebrated gods of the ancient Egyptian pantheon, Horus is celebrated as the lord of the sky, with the falcon as his symbol. The Pharoah, or ruler of Egypt, was often viewed as the living incarnation of Horus, and therefore divine. The Horus poster celebrates this ancient God with prayer, written by Travis Bowman and illustrated by Eliot Alexander. Printed upon an 8 1/2" by 11" parchment paper, this poster reads: O Sky Lord, Holder of both Moon and Sun, Great Falcon who flies the horizon, Teach me the ways of law and victory, Teach me of kings and light, Of triumphant flight And of the dawn.
