Regarded as the god of the sky and a sun god, Amon is also the patron deity for the city of Thebes while the priests of Hermopolis view him (and his consort Amenet) as a primordial creation-deity. The protector of any worshipper in need, he became ruler of this family of gods after he merged with the sun god Ra to become Amon-Ra.

Amon is often depicted in human form with blue skin and either the head of a bearded man or a ram’s head with curved horns. Alternatively, his forms also include a frog-headed man, a cobra-headed man, an ape, or a lion. He wears a crown composed of a modius surmounted by two tall feather plumes. Interestingly enough, even though his symbol is the goose or ram, he is never depicted as either. His true appearance is beyond all mortal understanding. Amon is said to be “hidden of aspect, mysterious of form,” and invisible yet omnipresent throughout the cosmos. He is also “an invisible creative power which is the source of all life in heaven, and on the earth, and in the great deep, and in the Underworld, and which manifests under the form of Amon-Ra.”
