The god of scriptures and wisdom in ancient Egyptian mythology. He has the body of a human and the head of an ibis. Sometimes he is depicted as a baboon. He is the embodiment of scientific and literary skills and gives man the gift of knowledge. He wears a crescent moon crown that contains a full moon. This symbolises his knowledge of the lunar system. The curved beak is the waxing or waning moon and his white feathers on his back is also symbolic of the moon. In his baboon form he stands up and chatters to give rise to the sun. Baboons in ancient Egypt are known to represent prayer.
