Seth animal

In ancient Egyptian art, the Set animal, or sha, is a chimerical beast, the totemic animal of the god Set… The linguistic use in the Egyptian language is as the determinative, for words portraying items with chaos, example words related to suffering, violence, perturbation. Also for the 'violent storms' of the atmosphere, a tempest. (Wiki)

Seth was the brother and killer of Osiris, lord of the underworld.
