Seth

Seth is the offspring of Geb and Nut. As the god of disorder, he was responsible for killing his brother, Osiris. In the Egyptian dualistic concept of the cosmos, Seth is placed in juxtaposition with Horus, the god who ruled the land with order and stability.

Seth is an animal-headed deity with a curved head, tall square-topped ears and an erect arrow-like tail. The animal he represents has not been identified. He is sometimes portrayed with a human body and an elongated bird-like head, similar in appearance to the god Thoth.
