Man Wrapped in a Tight Cloak Carrying a Staff. Ptah (Pteh , Peteh) Was One of the Triad of Memphis Along with Sekhmet (Or Bast) and Nefertum.
When Memphis Became the Capital of Egypt , Ptah Became the Ultimate Creator Who Made Everything Including the Gods of the Ogdoad of Hermopolis and the Ennead of Heliopolis and Was Given the Epithet "He Who Set All the Gods in Their Places and Gave All Things the Breath of Life". Ptah Was Worshipped Throughout All of Egypt, but His Primary Cult Centres Were in Memphis and Heliopolis. He Was So Popular in Egypt That It Is Said That the Name Egypt Itself Derives from a Greek Spelling of the Name of a Temple in Memphis; Hwt-Ka-Pth, Which Means The Temple of the Ka of Ptah. He Is Often Described as an Abstract Form of the "Self-Created One", Who Made the Universe Either by the Wish of His Heart (Sometimes Associated with Hathor or Horus) and by His Tongue (Or Speech, Identified with Thoth and Tefnut). Alternatively, You Could Argue That He Was More Directly in Control of Creation Than Either Ra or Atum.
He Was the Patron of Sculptors, Painters, Builders and Carpenters, and Other Craftsmen and Was Thought to Have Invented Masonry. In Fact, He May Have Formed the Template for the Idea of God as the Great Architect Which Is So Popular in Masonic Mythology and Some Branches of Christian Theology, or as the Book of the Dead Puts It, "A Master Architect, and Framer of Everything in the Universe".However, It Is Also Worthy of Note That Some Versions of the Legend Stated That Ptah Created the Heavens and the Earth While Khnum Fashioned the People and Animals on His Potter's Wheel, Although It Is Still Implied That Ptah.
