What did the Egyptians call this figure?

The great cow who bore the sun (ỉḥ.t wr.t ms rʿ)(1).

What do other Egyptian texts say about this figure?

"I have seen the sun-god who was born yesterday from the buttocks of the Celestial Cow; if he be well, then I be well, and vice verse. What does it mean? It means the waters of the sky. Otherwise said: It is the image of the Eye of Re on the morning of its daily birth. As for the Celestial Cow, she is the Sacred Eye of Re."(2).

What is the Sacred Eye?

"Eye of Horus torn out by Seth and restored by Thoth, symbolic of everything good, beneficial, and pleasant; the Egyptian name is Wadjet. Also the eye of the sun-god symbolizing the sun's destructive power"(3).

How did the Prophet Joseph explain this figure?

"Is called in Egyptian Enish-go-on-dosh; this is one of the governing planets also, and is said by the Egyptians to be the Sun, and to borrow its light from Kolob through the medium of Kae-e-vanrash, which is the grand Key, or, in other words, the governing power, which governs fifteen other fixed planets or stars, as also Floeese or the Moon, the Earth and the Sun in their annual revolutions."(4).
