Overview
In ancient Egypt, the gods were considered supernatural forces that controlled everyday occurrences. There were hundreds of these figures from the sun god Amun-Ra, who was worshipped in festivals throughout the land, to such lesser figures as Bastet, the goddess of sexuality and childbirth, who was represented by the image of a cat.

Anubis, the jackal-headed god of funerals and mummification
Isis, the goddess of love and motherhood
Bes, the god of pleasure and protector of children
Horus, the symbol of the living pharaoh, shown as a human male with the head of a falcon
Seth, a god symbolizing darkness and evil
Hathor, the goddess of love and protector of women
and six other immortals.
Fascinating captions characterizing the appearances and roles of these Egyptian gods and goddesses accompany the illustrations of facing pages."
