Cow-Headed Statue With Uraeus and Solar Crown?
« on: October 06, 2014, 05:06:41 pm »
Hotep everyone!

So, I found this statue at a local, new-to-me Egypt-o-phile shop, and (after asking permission first), I took some pictures to see if any of you awesome folks could help identify Who it might be.

https://scontent-b-sea.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/p960x960/1606279_360942144079831_964651193739216317_o.jpg

The everything at the shop (statues included) all come from Egypt (the owner is Egyptian), which is awesome... they have a LOT of Bast statues currently, due to a little mis-ordering for restocking, which is why there's Cats in the background of this picture.

Thanks so much for any insight anyone can give! :)

Maybe the Apis bull?

Things, as well as the gods are always dynamic, never static.  Things change, and to be static is no better than being eaten by monsters.

Ahha!! Yes!

When googling "Apis Bull", a whole bunch of pictures show up of cow-form Apis' with solar disk plus uraeus crowns... awesome! You seem to have hit it on the nail, Siwy. Thanks! :grin:

With the human body, it strikes me more as Mer-wer, since most depictions I've seen of Apis are in full bull form, but really it could be either, methinks. :)

Ooooooh! I'd never even heard of Mer-wer. Google has plenty of info on Him, which is awesome. Thank you for the idea, Dorothy! :)
