God Khnum

This deity was known as the god of the waters that circulated in the lower world, in this way, when the sun was shipwrecked in the darkness of the night, Khnum unconsciously joined it.

Among the most outstanding functions of this god in Egyptian religion, is that of creating living beings, men, and gods thanks to his potter's wheel, a place from which many claimed that the primordial egg had been born.

It is worth mentioning that with the pottery function, with which he created people at the same time as his Ka, he was given the name "The father of fathers and mother of mothers" in such a way that Khnum means literally "the modeler".

In the same way, the oldest legends tell, that at the beginning of time Khnum was dedicated to creating each man and each woman separately, but one day, Khnum woke up tired of doing this task, so without thinking he broke his lathe potter, thus introducing a different part of it in each woman, so each of them was given the role of giving birth to the next generations.

God of the Waters

Khnum is represented with a ram on his head, his man head, an Atef crown, carried an Ankh-sign scepter, so this god is part of the Esna triad, with Satis.
