Priest of the Spider

Priest of the SpiderThis Akhiptan Priest serves a divinity represented by the Spider, which in Akhiptan culture is associated with magic, technology, and mischief. The circular scars on his face are meant to emulate spider eyes.

Moving on to the history of the real world, there never was a full-blown spider god in ancient Egypt as far as I know. However, the spider’s spinning ability was sometimes associated with the goddess Neith who patronized weaving.
