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 is actually pronounced "Rah". Wikipedia is wrong again.

Also, there are no ancient egyptians still alive to actually pronounce it.

Yes but that's not how archaeology works. We know how to translate hieroglyphics, and it's a phoenetic alphabet. Although the Egyptians often missed out vowel sounds in transcribing names, what we do know is that "Ray" is what the Greeks called him, not the Egyptians. The Greeks translated a lot of names, and it's those Greek names we know today, not the original Egyptian. Yinepu became Anubis, Aset became Isis, Wesir became Osiris, Ra became Re. The Egyptians spell it with the sounds for Rah, and all modern practitioners of the religion pronounce it "Rah" as well.

It was just a joke. I'm sure archeologists are on top of it.

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. :)
