Egyptian God/Goddess?

Postby Stargzer » Sun Apr 08, 2007 9:16 pm

Before this avatar leaves us, I'd like to find out what ancient Egyptiian god/goddess had the body of a vulture and the head of a rabbit/hare.


Does it only eat grains and vegetable that have been cut down and are rotting?

This creature is, I trust, no relation to Bunnicula!

The Bunnicula series is a great set of stories for someone with a warped sense of humor to read to their children; after all, SOMEONE has to carry the madness on. [Hint to Dr. Goodword for his grandkids] :wink: I didn't know the series had expanded to 21 books!

The three I remember reading:

Howliday Inn (February 1, 1982)
The Celery Stalks at Midnight (August 1, 1983)
Return to Howliday Inn (March 28, 1992)

Gzer, to paraphrase Queen Victoria, "We are amused."

But this is clearly an Easter Bonnet, fetchingly fletched in Spring pastels. The oh-so-last-season Uraeus has been replaced with Peep-Amun which is, perhaps, a better symbol for millions of years...
