Khepri
'Who is Coming into Being'
(Man with a scarab head) Khepri was a god of creation, the movement of the sun, and rebirth. In certain creation stories, Khepri is connected with the god Atum. He is also connected with the sun god Ra who pushed the sun through the sky every day.

Ra 'Sun'
(Man with hawkhead and headdress with a sun disk)
Ra was the sun god. He was the most important god of the ancient Egyptians. The ancient Egyptians believed that Ra was swallowed every night by the sky goddess Nut, and was reborn every morning.


Amun
The Hidden One
(Man with tall plumes on a headdress)
Amun's name meant The Hidden One, and his image was painted blue to denote invisibility. This attribute of invisibility led to a popular belief during the New Kingdom in the knowledge and impartiality of Amun, making him a god for those who felt oppressed. Amun evolved into a universal god who intervened through oracles in many affairs of state.


AMUN RA


Aten
(A sun disk with rays which end in hands)
Aten was a form of the sun god Ra. During the reign of Akhenaten, the Aten was made the 'king' of the gods.

Scarab
(Sign of Resurrection)
The scarab was a favourite charm/amulet becoming associated with renewal and regeneration. It personified the god, Khepri, a sun god associated with resurrection. From the middle kingdom, they were often used by pharaoh as a royal seal and would also be produced to celebrate certain events during his reign. There are various funerary types, for example, the large winged scarab and the heart scarab which would be included within the linen wrapping of the mummy.
