Ancient Egyptian Gods

SOBEK
SOBEK

Sobek was depicted as a crocodile.

He was the Egyptian god of the Nile which was believed to have been created from his sweat.

As Sobek possessed the strength and nature of a crocodile, which the Egyptians both feared and respected, he became a symbol of the Pharaoh's power.

The Nile, which was full of crocodiles, was important to the livelihood of the Egyptians.

It therefore made good sense to have a god like Sobek who could appease these ferocious beasts.
