Sacred Source -Nile River Goddess

Home Order

Nile River Goddess For the ancient Egyptians, who called themselves the Kemi, her hook-shaped hands symbolized Regeneration. This transformative aspect is further imaged by the graceful, crescent-sweeping arms uplifted in a drawing down the moon gesture. The Mother Goddess in late Neolithic times was equated with bird and animal life; her birdlike head is suggestive of later death-bringing vulture goddesses such as Neith and Mut (The Kemian word mother, in fact, was depicted by the vulture hieroglyph.) Here in one evocative image of life-death-life is shown the core of Kemian wisdom, the principle of reincarnation.
