|Mut|| also spelt
Her fame started in the New Kingdom and her name Mut simply meant - mother. The mythology about her moved to Heliopolis where she was said once to have changed from goddess of the sky into a cow. In Thebes she had a temple and though she had no special domain to protect in daily life, her popularity was constant as wife to the state god Amon. She had adopted the ram-god Khons and became a member of the Triad of Thebes. She was seen wearing the double crown on her head with a hair ornament like a lying golden vulture (left) and sometimes she had a vulture's head. She was the mother from which the cos- mos emerged and called "Mother of the Gods".
