This is the God Kahnum
Khnum was a creator god, and a god of the inundation(The yearly flooding of the Nile River.)
Since the annual flooding of the Nile brought with it silt and clay, and its water brought life to its surroundings, he was thought to be the creator of the bodies of human children, which he made at a potter’s wheel, from clay, and placed in their mothers’ wombs.
he had the titles Divine Potter and Lord of created things from himselfMarch 4, 2015 at 5:32 pm #120823
This is the Goddess Bastet
Bastet was the Goddess of cats & protection(sometimes known as the “cat of Ra”).
She was one of the daughters of the sun god, Ra and is associated with Ra’s instrument of vengeance, the sun-god’s eye. She was the goddess of warfare in Lower Egypt, the Nile River delta region, before the unification of the cultures of ancient Egypt. The two uniting cultures had deities that shared similar roles and usually the same imagery. In Upper Egypt, Sekhmet was the parallel warrior lioness deity to Bast
Bastet was the protector of The God Ra earning her the titles of Lady of Flame and Eye of Ra.
Ra has four daughters, Ma’at & Bastet are mostly drew without his sun disk but his two other daughters Sekhmet & Hathor are always drew with it. I have found no answer to why this is, if somebody knows why pleas let me knowMarch 4, 2015 at 7:23 pm #120832
This is the Goddess Hathor
Hathor was a protective goddess. She was also the goddess of love and joy. She was one of the daughters of the sun god, Ra. She was one of the most important and popular deities throughout the history of Ancient Egypt.
When Ra was without Hathor, he fell into a state of deep depressionMarch 4, 2015 at 8:08 pm #120835
This is the Goddess Sekhmet
Sekhmet was the goddess of war, fire, & vengeance
The fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. She was one of the daughters of the sun god, Ra. It was said that her breath formed the desert. In one myth, Sekhmet was so filled with rage that Ra was forced to turn her into a cow so that she would not cause unnecessary harm.
Update – I figured that if I make Bastet more human I should also make Sekhmet more humanMarch 4, 2015 at 9:56 pm #120839
The God Ra and his daughters
L-R (Bastet, Sekhmet, Ra, Hathor, Ma’at)March 5, 2015 at 9:54 am #120860
This is the God Anubis
Anubis was the god of embalming and the dead.
He was the god who helped to embalm Osiris after he was killed by Seth. Thus, Anubis was the god who watched over the process of mummifying people when they died.
Priests often wore a mask of Anubis during mummification ceremonies.
Anubis was replaced by Osiris in his role as Lord of the underworld. One of his prominent roles was as a god who ushered souls into the afterlife.
Despite being one of the most ancient and “one of the most frequently depicted and mentioned gods” in the Egyptian pantheon, however, Anubis played almost no role in Egyptian myths.March 5, 2015 at 10:05 am #120862
This is the God Osiris
Osiris was the god of the dead, and ruler of the underworld.
He was classically depicted as a green-skinned man with a pharaoh’s beard, partially mummy-wrapped at the legs, wearing a distinctive crown with two large ostrich feathers at either side, and holding a symbolic crook and flail.
He was at times considered the oldest son of the earth god Geb, and the sky goddess Nut, as well as being brother and husband of Isis, with Horus being considered his posthumously begotten son.
Osiris was widely worshipped as Lord of the Dead until the suppression of the Egyptian religion during the rise of Christianity in the Roman Empire.March 5, 2015 at 10:48 am #120882
Damn, I love mythology. Cool interpretation of the Egyptian deities!
