In the form of the Axe, from the Stellar it was brought on in the Solar Cult as one of the Symbols to represent the Great God Ptah; the Great Architect of the Universe was one of his names, but he was also called the Great Chief of the Hammer (see Ritual of Ancient Egypt). Figs. 76, 77, and 78 represent the God of the Axe in three forms. Fig. 76 represents Ramman, the God of the Axe of the Susians. The horns here signify Solar Descent. The hair and features are those of "The Suk" of Africa. The Axe denotes that he is "The God of the Axe," "The Cleaver of the Way" - i.e., the Egyptian Horus of the Double Horizon or Double Equinox. The Three Rods or Rays of Light denote his name as that of IU or IAU. He is therefore the Atum-IU of the Egyptians. He is supported by his Four Brothers - i.e., the Four Brothers or Children of Horus here portrayed in human form for the first time, as in the Stellar Cult these were represented by Zootypes: Man, Lion, Ox, and Eagle. The hair and features of these are the same as those of the "Suk" of Africa, from whom they descended.
