Horus was one of the most ancient of Egyptian gods being the progeny of an immaculate conception between the God Osiris and the Goddess Isis. At certain periods the reigning king of Egypt was known in one of his titles as 'the living Horus' who would try to establish and maintain order from chaos.
This was the nature of Horus. A defender and fighter against his equally matched uncle Seth who was the god of disorder and destruction, storms and earthquakes. Depictions of Horus fighting Seth are common and can be looked at as the Egyptian version of Yin and Yang because one cannot overpower the other. Night and day, black and white, good and bad.
