Male Hathor
« on: July 11, 2012, 09:13:35 am »
 This male cow - described as Hathor is a new one for me, but possibly not you.
I'd go for Apis, but I've never seen Him in human form before.
Any thoughts?

I think this is the group that uses the same body cast and different heads, but I may be wrong.

Stick a little sistrum or menat in his hand, and you would have a tolerable Ihy. Though he probably shouldn't have a sun disc.

Now, that is something I've never seen! I'll be interested to hear other responses.

I would say not to use him as anything :P Except a very very flat Hathor, since I've never seen a male deity with the sun disc on their head.

I would initially be inclined to call that Montu. He's normally depicted as hawk-headed, but in later periods, He was sometimes depicted as bull-headed with a sun disc incorporated into His crown. This figure, however, is missing the two feather plumes and the horns look too Hethert-y for Montu, so I have to go with the previous sentiment of call it nobody.

For reference, this is an excellent depiction of Montu in bull-headed form.

I have been seeing a lot of these lately, along with a few other "mismatched" looking bodies and heads. /:

I believe that may be a statue of Mer-wer, a bull-headed manifestation of Atum-Ra.
