Egypt in New York

still King...
Thoth is sorta like my favorite...I think he might have known a few things we currently don't.
THoTH
Cleopatra's Needle
Personal Shrine
I like BIG butts and I can not lie.
1300 BC Ancient Greece.
 Heck, even they couldn't resist the BOOTIE.
This is a fertility goddess idol.
(obviously)
Entrance to Nimrod's Tomb

Thoth
Here you see the multitude of Egyptian gods....Osiris is the 1st from the right w/ the large head-dress; next we have Horus, flanked by Anubis going left.  Behind Anubis is Isis.  Hathor is next (unseen). Yes, I have an infatuation w/ Egyptian Mythology.  It all started with Joseph Campbell
Hathor Osiris Isis
There is a tendency in [pagan] religious history for the gods to be grouped in 3's .... Even in Christianity, the Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost reflects the underlying tendency. In India, the great Triad included Brahma, the Creator, Vishnu, the Preserver, and Shiva, the Destroyer. These represent the cycle of existence, just as the Babylonian triad of Anu, Enlil and Ea represent the materials of existence: air, water, earth.

until net time,
