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 later was described as having moulded the other deities, and he had the titles Divine Potter and Lord of created things from himself.The worship of Khnum centered on two principal riverside sites, Elephantine Island and Esna, which were regarded as sacred sites. At Elephantine, he was worshipped alongside Anuket and Satet as the guardian of the source of the Nile River. His significance led to early theophoric names of him, for children, such as Khnum-Khufwy – Khnum is my Protector, the full name of Khufu, builder of the Great Pyramid.[1]Khnum has also been related to the deity MinThe temple at Elephantine was dedicated to Khnum, his consort Satet and their daughter Anuket. The temple dates back to at least the Middle Kingdom. By the 11th dynasty Khnum, Satet and Anuket are all attested at Elephantine. During the New Kingdom finds from the time of Ramesses II show Khnum was still worshipped there.[3]Opposite Elephantine, on the east bank at Aswan, Khnum, Satet and Anuket are shown on a chapel wall dating to the Ptolemaic time.Desecration Ancient Egyptian Statue of God Anubis made from Hammer Payment Accept Paypal only Shipping We're shipping worldwide we're shipping DHL Shipping Combine First item 100% fees ,from the second till the fourth 50% fees ,the rest will be 25% Material: Hammer
