iusaas

Iusaas is the Egyptian Goddess of the female creative principle. She is the feminine counterpart of the male creative principle personified by the God Atum. One name that Iusaas acquired was the Hand of Atum–when Atum first created the world, he masturbated and formed the first Gods with the semen. The story was later changed to add the feminine role in creation. Iusaas is depicted in human form with a scarab beetle on her head, and also wears the sun disk and horns of Hathor, with whom she was later assimilated. Her name, which means “she comes who is great,” is also seen as Jusas and Juesaes.
