He Is First Mentioned in the Pyramid Texts and His Worship Continued Until the Roman Period. Some Sects Believed That Sobek Was the Creator of the World Who Arose from the Dark Water and Created the Order in the Universe. Sobek Was a God of the Nile Who Brought Fertility to the Land. as the Lord of the Waters" He Was Thought to Have Risen from the Primeval Waters of Nun to Create the World and Made the Nile from His Sweat. One Creation Myth Stated That Sobek Laid Eggs on the Bank of the Waters of Nun Thus Creating the World. However, as Well as Being a Force for Creation, He Was Seen as an Unpredictable Deity Who Sometimes Allied Himself with the Forces of Chaos. Sobek First Appeared in the Old Kingdom as the Son of Neith with the Epithet The Rager". According to Some Myths His Father Was Set, the God of Thunder and Chaos, but He Also Had a Close Association with Horus. He Was Paired with a Number of Goddesses in Different Locations, Most Notably Hathor, Renenutet, Heqet and Taweret, and Was Sometimes Referred to as the Father of Khonsu, Horus or Khnum. in Some Areas, a Tame Crocodile Was Worshiped as the Earthly Embodiment of Sobek Himself, While in Other Places Crocodiles Were Reviled, Hunted and Killed. It Seems Likely That Sobek Began as a Dark God Who Had to Be Appeased, but That His Protective Qualities and His Strength Were Valued When They Were Used in Defence of the Pharaoh and the People. He Could Protect the Justified Dead in the Netherworld, Restoring Their Sight and Reviving Their Senses. Because of His Ferocity, He Was Considered to Be the Patron of the Army.Sobek Was Sometimes Considered to Be an Aspect of Horus Because Horus Took the Form of a Crocodile to Retrieve the Parts of Osiris' Body Which Were Lost in the Nile. Yet Sobek Was Also Thought to Have Assisted Isis When She Gave Birth to Horus. He Also Rescued the Four Mummiform Sons of Horus (Imsety the Human Headed Protector of the Liver, Hapy the Baboon Headed Protector of the Lungs, Duamutef the Jackal Headed Protector of the Stomach and Qebehsenuef the Falcon Headed Protector of the Intestines) by Gathering Them in a Net When They Rose from the Waters in a Lotus Bloom. However, He Was Also Associated with Set, the Enemy of Osiris. He Was Also Worshiped as the Manifestation of Amun-Re and Was Often Depicted Wearing Either the Headdress of Amun or the Sun Disk of Ra.Note: Dear Buyer / This Statue Is Very Distinctive. the Collection of the Very Old House Since 1970 Is Made of Carved Stone in the Desert of the Egyptian City of Luxor, This Piece Is Carved from Ancient Pharaonic Stones, This Statue Is an Ancient Hand Carving.
