Ancient Egyptian Gods


Khnum was depicted as a ram.

He was the Egyptian water god and the potter god of creation.

It was believed that he created the first children on his potter's wheel with clay from the banks of the Nile.

Khnum also protected the sun (in the form of the god Ra) on its daily journey through the underworld.

Every night they sailed together in the solar barque until the sun safely rose again at the dawn of the new day.
