Ra VS Anubis by EuchridEucrow Ra VS Anubis by EuchridEucrow
Requested by a friend of mine. Actually, it was the very same friend who requested "Ankh of the Damned".

I like this one better than "Ankh of the Damned", personally.

Did some surfing on the internet (ie: wikipedia) that initially Ra was Anubis father. But at some point, the egyptian did some corrections on the mythology, making Osiris the father of Anubis. I don't know what evidence came to light, but I can make a guess or two. Like for example Ra being a falcon and Anubis being a jackal.

On another note; Ra is not pronounced "Rah", but "Ray". Hence the reason to why his name sometimes is spelled Re. Takes the mysticism out of him a bit. "I AM A SUNGOD. MY NAME IS RAY."

Well, wikipedia isn't known to be a 100% accurate, anyways.

Ra-Horekti: Dying Father and Resurrected Son. I place credence in Ra,being the sun,as well as the first pharoah,and watcher,of Egypt.

If i recall correctly, Ra was a human, only when he was joined with Horace did he become Amon-Ra, who was basically both of them with the form of a bird-person. but hey, I'm just driving the point away of this being an awesome pic! Nice job ^^

the name your looking for is Ra-Horekti,meaning dying father and resurrected son. Ra/Horus put together.

That's probably right. I know he was called Amun-Ra at some ocations, I but not why he was. Just googled Ra and got a bunch of birdmen. :)
