Gatekeeper

by Hamdi R.

Gatekeeper of the Underworld

Aker is an Egyptian god who was the gatekeeper to the worlds beyond, where one would go after death. The symbol of Aker is usually two lions or sphinxes facing back to back, looking in opposite directions. The written record of Aker was discovered in the texts in King Teti's tomb.
