With time he was taken into the cult of his local colleague Ptah and was then said to have em- erged from the heart of his div- ine creation.
Later he also was a manifest- ation of the resurrected Osiris in an annual festival at Thebes and was given a mummy dress (at right) and joined the triad - Ptah-Sokar-Osiris. On very rare occa- sions he could be seen as a dwarf with a big head. His animal was the falcon and he was usually depicted as a man with a falcon's head, the white crown of Upper Egypt with plumes and the Atef-crown (pictures). Main text.
