God Aker

God Aker
God Aker embraces the world - he is represented as the sign of the view in-between two lions (sometimes these possibly human forms rather) which are sat back to back (one animal faces west - where the sun sets each day and starts its journey into the night and Underworld, the other lion faces the eastern where the sun rises each morning free once less told from the realm of darkness). Ancient Egyptian mythologists believed that during the night the sun journeyed finished a tunnel that existed in the earth - its entry into the tunnel caused the night, its emergence again contributing the day once again. Each end of this burrow was defended by a lion god, and the two gods were called Akeru (also famous as Akherui):

Aker is an old god from ancient Egypt - he is first observed in the Pyramid Texts, and from the transits in which his name happens is thought that he had a very clear and well fixed role in the Early Egyptian kingdoms.

In the afterward period of Egyptian theology the two lions cooking the Akeru were named Sef and Tuau - 'yesterday' and 'today' respectively. Because the ancient Egyptians believed that Aker restrained the gates of the morning and night, statues of the lion god were set at the doors of houses and besides at tombs to guard both the enduring and the dead from evil spirits and more eartherly foes. These lion protectors were sometimes broken the head of women and men  which turned them into a more identifiable form - that of the Sphinx.
