The hawk soars over the dunes,
wings spread wide in burning sunlight.
The Nile flows coolly beneath,
a sapphire gem set in golden sand.

In the path of the hawk
flows life and sunlight.
His cry the melody of the Pharaohs.
Symbol of the living king.

Mythical Horus perches at the edge of night,
warding off the evils of destruction.
Egypt sleeps safely under his protection,
as the hawk continues to fly overhead.

Statue of Horus making a libation  

Originally, this bronze statue of the god Horus was covered with precious materials; inlays of glass or colored faience; and gilt coating or gold plate, to evoke the eternal indestructible flesh of the gods. 

These elements also concealed the joints between the various sections cast using the lost-wax technique. (bronze, height: 95 cm) 3rd Intermediate Period, 22nd Dynasty, ca. 945-720 BC. Now in the Louvre.
