Seti I, Osiris and Horus

Seti I
Seti I was the son of Ramesses I and Queen Sitre. Like his father before him, Seti was a good military leader. He plundered Palestine and brought Damascus back into Egyptian control. He reconciled with the Hittites who were becoming the most powerful state in the region. Seti I and his heir, Ramesses II campaigned against Kadesh. In Karnak he completed his father's plan by converting the court between the second and third pylons into a vast hypostyle hall. He built his vast mortuary complex at Abydos. In Thebes, he built his tomb, located in the Valley of the Kings. Cut 300 feet into the cliffs, it was the largest tomb in the area. Buried with him were over 700 Shabti. These were carved stone or wooden figures that were to accompany him to the afterlife to comply with the requests from the gods.

Osiris
God of the dead and the Afterlife, as well as rebirth and fertility, Osiris was usually represented in a mummified anthropomorphc form, often holding a crook and flail, and with the atef-crown on his head.

Horus
The son of Osiris and Isis, Horus was a god of the sky and is usually depicted as a falcon, or a man with a falcon's head wearing the crown of all Egypt. Horus's name means 'He Who is Above' and is probably linked to his status as a god of the sky and to the high soaring of the falcon.

He is probably most well-known as the protector of the ruler of Egypt. After Osiris was murdered by his brother Seth, Horus fought with Seth for the throne of Egypt. In this battle, Horus lost one of his eyes. The eye was restored to him and it became a symbol of protection for the ancient Egyptians. After this battle, Horus was chosen to be the ruler of the world of the living.
