Khepri and Thoth

Khepri and Thoth

Reproduction of a relief panel dating to 400–200 BC. It depicts two baboons offering wedjat eyes to the god Khepri, the newborn sun represented by a beetle. In his front legs, Khepri holds a disk with a star, which is the sign for the Duat or Underworld, and beneath him, there is a sun with rays. The baboons are similar to the baboons often shown heralding the sunrise by dancing and screeching, but here they are associated with the god Thoth by the wedjat (eye) signs they hold.
