Seth (also found spelled as Set) is the ancient Egyptian god of the desert, storms, darkness and Chaos. Indeed, in ancient Egyptian culture his very name meant to be an instigator of confusion, a deserter, or a drunkard. He was known for his conflict with Osiris, whom he attacked out of jealousy and envy, dismembering Osiris and throwing his pieces into the Nile. This conflict also brought about his contention with Horus, who was the son of Osiris and Isis.
Here he is portrayed with jet-black skin, as are many of the deities of ancient Egypt, with the body of a man and the head of a beast. Known often simply as the "Set animal," the beast is a blend of the donkey, a jackal, and an aardvark. His golden attire lends to the impression that he is girded for war, while the sickle and crook in his hands leave little doubt that he is intended to sew strife.
Standing 10" tall, this statue is sculpted of cold cast resin and is perfectly suited for any altar of worship.
