Egyptian Deity: Sobek the crocodile god of the Nile River

Posted by Discoveries Inc. on

Sobek is an ancient Egyptian deity who was associated with the Nile River and its crocodiles. He was worshiped as a powerful god of fertility, protection, and military power.

As a god of fertility, Sobek was believed to have the power to increase the fertility of both humans and animals. He was also associated with the annual flooding of the Nile, which was seen as a vital source of water and nutrients for crops.

Sobek was often depicted as a crocodile-headed man, or simply as a crocodile. Sobek was an important and powerful god in ancient Egyptian religion, and his worship was widespread throughout Egypt during the pharaonic period. Today you can visit the Temple of Kom Ombo which was built as a shrine to Sobek.

For the first time in many years, we now offer a statue of Sobek. All our statues are Made in Egypt.
