This Egyptian candle holder depicts the Egyptian ram god, Amun

At the temple of Amun in Karnak, the sphinxes which flank the entrance of the First Pylon of Karnak combine the body of a lion with the head of a ram. The ram was a symbol of the god Amun for whom the temple was built. Each sphinx protects, between its forelegs, a standing statue of the Ramesses II.

Horus Candle Holder

The son of Osiris and Isis, Horus was a god of the sky and is usually depicted as a falcon, or a man with a falcon's head wearing the crown of all Egypt.

Horus's name means 'He Who is Above' and is probably linked to his status as a god of the sky and to the high soaring of the falcon.

He is probably most well-known as the protector of the ruler of Egypt.

After Osiris was murdered by his brother Seth, Horus fought with Seth for the throne of Egypt.

In this battle, Horus lost one of his eyes. The eye was restored to him and it became a symbol of protection for the ancient Egyptians. After this battle, Horus was chosen to be the ruler of the world of the living.

He is most associated with the temple at Edfu (ancient Mesen), where he was worshipped with his consort Hathor and their child Harsomtus.


Ramesses II Candle Holder

Called Ramesses the Great, he lived for 96 years. It is believed that he had as many as fifty sons and fifty daughters, though only a few of them are known to us. His chief, and most likely favorite wife was Nefertari. In the seventh year of his father's (Seti I) reign, Ramesses II became co-ruler of Egypt. Ramesses II and his father began many restoration and building projects. These included the building of several temples and the restoration of other shrines and complexes throughout Egypt. He built a mortuary complex at Abydos in honor of Osiris and the famed Ramesseum. Having outlived many of his older sons, his 13th son ascended to the throne upon his death in 1298 B.C.E.
