He was depicted as a very young man with short cut hair except for his long curly hair-lock which hung down over his cheek, meaning he was still a child. He wore a small diadem with the cobra Buto*. In his right hand he held a decorated sistrum which was a common in- strument to make rhythmic sounds. It's the same ob- ject that can be seen on top of the head of his mother Hathor* in whose temple in Dendera he had his cult. His father was the well known falcon god of Upper Egypt - Horus.
