Horus is the son of Osiris and Isis, the divine child of the holy family triad. He is one of many gods associated with the falcon. His name means "he who is above" and "he who is distant". The falcon had been worshipped from earliest times as a cosmic deity whose body represents the heavens and whose eyes represent the sun and the moon.

The story of Osiris, Isis: The God Osiris and the Goddess Isis were King and Queen in Egypt. Their brother, the God Seth was jealous of Osiris and murdered him. Seth took Osiris's body and threw it in the river. Isis was then removed from power and Seth took over the rule of the country, reigning as a tyrant. Isis searched tirelessly for the body of her husband. When she found him she performed a ritual. Through ritual, the Spirit of the God Osiris came to Isis, and through their Divine spiritual union Isis became pregnant with Horus.
