Luxor, Divinities

Representation of divinities on one of the walls of the temple of Karnak. Some gods and goddesses take a human form; it is the case of Atoum, Isis, Neith. The cap or the hieroglyphs which they carry on the head then makes it possible to distinguish them. Much of them rather borrows their form and their qualities from Egyptian fauna, sometimes with beneficial and useful animals to which they return a worship in thanks of their benefits, sometimes with dangerous animals that they seek to reconcile themselves.
