Scorching Sun God

This is a local version of Horus in the form of the mid-day sun — and in mad dog scorching mode. Unless you’re keen on global warming, you’d better stay indoors.

Using his amazing solar winged disk of power he defeated Set and a multitude of enemies. He was rewarded with utmost glory and his name scribbled on the temple wall.
