Do you believe the world is a great pile of poop? Then KHEPRI is the god for you. He’s the sacred Egyptian dung beetle.
Every morning, come rain or shine, he pushes his dungball up the hill to symbolize RA, the rising sun. In the evening he passes the ball to ATUM. We hope they wash their hands afterwards.
Because baby scarab beetles are hatched from dung, the Egyptians thought there must be something very potent in the stuff. So KHEPRI became the prestigious God of Rebirth, and not, as you might have thought, the god of nasty smelly things.
