Horus and Geb

A fine relief of the Egyptian gods Horus and Geb from tomb KV14 in the Valley of the Kings. KV14 was the tomb of both pharaoh Twosret of the 19th dynasty and Setnakht, her successor, who founded the 20th dynasty. When Setnakhte came to power, he usurped Twosret's pre-existing tomb for himself and arranged to have all images of Twosret erased. Setnakhte had himself solely represented in KV14. The royal cartouche of Setnakhte can be seen at the right hand side of the photo.
