ancient Egyptian gods "K"
Khepri, Khepera, Kheper, Khepra, Chepri:
This god is depicted as a scarab beetle although in some
instances he is in human form with a beetles head. He is known
as the cyclical renewal god whose behavior in maintaining the
dung balls represents the forces which stir and move the sun.
Ancient Egyptians thought that scarab beetles were made from
dead matter because of the laying of their eggs in various dead
animals and then the beetles suddenly emerging to life. This
practice associated Khepri with rebirth, renewal, and
resurrection. He is also known to be responsible for the daily
rising and other aspects of the sun. He was also shown rolling
the sun along the sky and pushing the moon along the sky.
