Khnum was an ancient god of the first cataract (waterfall) of the Nile, where on the island of Elephantine, the river was said to emerge from the subterranean ocean of Nun. Khnum was in some traditions the maker of earth, water, and the underworld. He created both gods and men: he fashioned men from clay on a potter's wheel and every child born is formed by his hands. Made of cultured marble, hand gold leafed and detailed.
