Sphinx of Ra or the Sun - from Pantheon Egyptien (1823-1825) by Leon Jean Joseph Dubois (1780-1846)
The back of a chair from Tutankhamon's tomb. It depicts the god of eternity, Heh, who is himself seated on the symbol for gold, and holding palm branch symbols representing years. They rest upon Heket (Heqt, Heqet), a frog goddess of fertility and rebirth, whose image is also the symbol for one million. She is seated on Shen symbols/hieroglyphs, which represent eternity.
