Amulet of Horus as a Hawk


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The combination of the crescent moon with the full moon disk leads to an identification of the hawk as the god Khonsu of Thebes. The figure of the hawk stands on a rectangular base. When Horus wears a sun disk, he is the god of cyclical renewal.
