S*Sjöliden's King Ra, NFO ds 22
Ra was a sun god from Heliopolis. He sailed across the sky every day in his ship that had the sun disk on board. He should also have had an eye that he could detach from his head and let travel like the sun across the sky. The Pharaohs wore this eye in their outfit as an indication of their divine origin. At night he fought the serpent Apep, who wanted to drag his ship down into the darkness and prevent the sun from rising the next morning. Ra is described as the ancestor of all other gods. Through self-fertilization, he is said to have produced the first divine couple, Shu and Tefnut. Over time, he is said to have become weaker until the god Horus took over his functions.
