Horus was the god of the sky. His father was the temporarily resurrected Osiris, who had been brought back to life by his wife Isis after he was murdered by his brother Set. Horus avenged the murder by fighting a long, hard battle with Set, during which time he lost an eye. This Eye of Horus later became a very important Egyptian symbol.
