In Egyptian mythology its origin is described as the emergence of a god who comes from the original ocean, who existed before creation, Atum was the one who would start creation, as he gave life to his two sons Shu and Tefnut, who were the gods of air and humidity respectively.

The ancient Egyptians represented him as a bearded man, wearing a double crown. Atum was the first Egyptian deity to be represented in human form, as it was he who replaced Imy-UAF, a serpent god. After this, Atum begins his work of creation.

When he was represented in his form as the solar god, he wore a ram, phoenix, or mongoose head, on other occasions they represented him in the form of a serpent, which came out of the primordial waters and was renewed every day.
