Egyptian Serpentine Deities – from the Archives of ZAXON Publishing


Egypt Serpentine Deities

Here is a collection of Egyptian Serpentine Deities i put together decades ago, so it is not as up to date as my knowledge now, but if you compare the notes with the Anubis initiation posted earlier that fills in some blanks. WARNING – this post does contain images of artistic nudity. Enjoy!
