Mirror image of Hapy from

Though the Nile had other guardian gods, it was Hapy, the "Lord of the Fishes and Birds of the Marshes," who held the  all-important job of controlling the flow of the river.

He was a powerful deity; yet he had no temple, as far as we know. This patron of Lower and Upper Egypt had two names: Hap-Meht and Hap-Reset.

The mirror image shows his dual nature, and the blue colour symbolizes the water so important to him.
