Your Field Guide to Spotting Khnum

Khnum is pretty easy to spot—with a ram's head, complete with horns, he's one of a kind. He's also the sensitive artist type, considering the amount of time he spends creating masterpieces on his potter's wheel. You can find him by the Nile, scooping up river clay to make his next creation, or at one of his many temples across Egypt.
