Thoth - Egypt Land of Mystery

Thoth is the Egyptian god of Knowledge, the Moon, Wisdom, Magic and Writing.

Thoth’s Egyptian name was Djehuty meaning “He Who is Like the Ibis”. The ibis was a sacred bird in ancient Egypt as well as a popular pet and associated with wisdom. In art, he is often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a seated baboon, as the baboon is considered an intelligent creature.

Thoth was one of the most important gods of ancient Egyptalternately said to be self- created or born of the seed of Horus from the forehead of Set. As the son of these two deities, who represented order and chaos respectively, he was also the god of equilibrium and balance.

As Thoth was credited with the creation of a number of branches of knowledge (law, magic, philosophy, religion , science, and writing) he was thought to be an infallible judge capable of rendering completely just decisions.

I chose to make Thoth because I identify myself with some of his attributes, like justice and science. I made a cake topper with Thoth modeled in sugarpaste and also the animals associated to him – a baboon and an ibis.
