Icon of Heru
5”x7” Collage Artwork handmade by Alexis Smith in Marfa, TX
This Icon depicts the image of Heru/Horus, “That which is Above”, the Egyptian Neteru (god) of victory, the sky, offerings, & illumination.
Heru is mounted on a background of Obsidian, surrounded by his plant allies of Olive & Patchouli, and the dual Eyes of Heru: the left eye of the Moon & the right eye of the Sun. Above Heru is his ancient hieroglyphic name, and below is his corresponding Zodiacal sign, Leo.
