Egyptian Fertility God

Also known as Herishef, Heryshaf, Heryshef

Horny primeval god

He is a manifestation of Horus. He’s a fertility deity with a horned ram’s head who rose out of the primordial waters of creation until his head was in the sky.

One of his eyes became the Sun and the other became the Moon. Which means he must have been extremely cross-eyed.

He is a god of fertility, although so far we haven’t uncovered the fertile details. It seems if you had a ram’s head in ancient Egypt you were immediately considered sexy. Even if you were cross-eyed.
