Origin of Serket

By the time of the first family (c. 3150-2890 BC) was associated with the god Nun, the father of the gods. The nun was the abyss of water from which the primitive hill (Ben ibn) rose on which god Atom (Ra) stood at the dawn of creation.

It is unclear what role she played, if any, in creating the world, but the evidence suggests that she may have been Atom's wife, Noon's first son, or even Noon's wife. You will discover during Egypt day tours, she was photographed as one of the gods aboard the battleship of the sun god Ra, who guards the snake Apophis as the boat sails through the night sky.

The scorpion is purposely shown without sting or claws to represent Serket's role as a protector against poisonous stings. Serket was eventually absorbed into the Cult of God Horus, where she became closely associated with death and the souls of the deceased. She was then known as "Lady of the Beautiful Tent," which referred to the embalmers' tent. She is best known for her golden statue and the canopic alabaster jar from Tutankhamun's Tomb.

Serket and the myth of Osiris

The Osiris myth was the most popular story in ancient Egypt that you will discover during your Egypt Classic tours, steadily gaining followers until, by the New Kingdom (1570-1069 BC), it significantly informed the values of Egyptian culture. The Osiris myth tells the story of the god Osiris and his sister-wife Isis who reign over the early paradise world. Their brother Set becomes jealous of Osiris and traps him in an ornate coffin, killing him, and then throws the box into the Nile. Isis retrieves her husband's body and takes it back to Egypt, hiding it in the swamps of the Delta region. If you decide to take Egypt Easter tours to Luxor and Aswan, you will be amazed by the stories and length, you will enter a new level full of fun and entertainment.

She asks her sister Nephthys to stand guard while she goes to gather herbs to bring him back to life, but, as she leaves, Set finds Nephthys and tricks her into revealing where Osiris' body is hidden. He tears the body to pieces and scatters them through Egypt and into the Nile, and when Isis returns, she only finds the weeping Nephthys who tells her what happened.

Isis and Nephthys search for and find all the body parts, and Isis is able to revive her husband. However, his penis has been eaten by a fish, so he is incomplete and cannot remain a lord on earth. Before her descent into the underworld, Isis turns into a falcon and flies around his body, picking up his seed on her own, and becomes pregnant with a son, God Horus. God Osiris then leaves to assume his new role as Judge of the Dead and Goddess Isis is left alone to hide herself and her newborn son from Set.

Serket is sometimes included in the story at this time in her role as protector of the innocent. Isis has a difficult laboring and gives birth to Horus in the delta swamps. Serket presides over the birth by keeping toxic scorpions and snakes away from the new mother and baby. This part of the story would later be cited in Serket's role as protector of women during childbirth and of mothers. After Horus was born Isis had to continue to hide in the marshes of Set and only went out at night to eat. At these times, Serket protected the child and sent the scorpions with Isis as her bodyguard.
