Aker is the double lion god, the gaurdian of the sunrise and sunset.
Between the lions is the akhet symbol which represents the horizon on which the sunrises or sets.
This symbol is made up of a solar disk cradled between the two peaks of the mountain djew.
The western peak was called Manu, while the eastern peak was called Bakhu.
It was these peaks that supported the sky.
