In ancient Egypt, the gods were considered supernatural forces that controlled everyday occurrences. There were hundreds of these figures — from the sun god Amun-Ra, who was worshipped in festivals throughout the land, to such lesser figures as Bastet, the goddess of sexuality and childbirth, who was represented by the image of a cat.
