Master of Law by gpalmer Master of Law by gpalmer
In English we know him by his Greek name, Thoth, but this ancient Egyptian god was known as Djehuty or Dhwty. Thoth was the patron of scribes and was considered the inventor of writing. He was usually portrayed as a man with an ibis head, or as a baboon. He was also the god of mathematics, of all the sciences, and every branch of human and divine knowledge. His symbols are the crescent moon, the writing case, the papyrus and the pen.

This one of the best pictures of Thoth that I have ever seen! Thumbs Up  Thumbs Up  Thumbs Up
And I mean this in an honest way.
The moon in the backround fits very good because Thoth is also a moon god  ;) (Wink) and the realism of this picture is just stunnig.
All in all a very good picture. :D (Big Grin)  :) (Smile)
