39 Min and 51 Renenutet

Min - Fertility

Min – Fertility

Two gods from Ancient Egypt come to you with a message of hope. Both represent the fertile soil, which is why they are portrayed with black skin. Renenutet is the fertile soil and is shown with her child, the god of grain, upon her lap as a loving mother sustaining her child. Min, the god of male fertility, is shown with a flail in his hand to thresh the grain. Together they tell you that going from an idea to a fully developed creation takes a lot of work. The work of a mother is easily as hard as that of a farmer tilling the soil. Whatever it is that you want to create, you will start with an idea, but you will work for it to succeed.
