Creator God Khnum: Family & Life

|

By Morningbird

Khnum was a creator God who molded the first people out of clay from the Nile. He was originally the God of the source of the Nile river, but Hapy took over that role. Khnum makes infants out of clay and places them in their mothers’ wombs. Then his wife Heqet breathes life into them when they emerge.

He is imaged as a man with the head of a curled-horned ram.
