Kek

Kek in egyptian mythology was a primordial Egyptian god. It was one of eight Egyptian deities composing the ogdoad in the Hermopolitan Theological System who represented chaos.

His consort was Keket. He is one of the four masculine deities who had heads of frogs representing their apparent self-creation.

When paired with Keket, the pair epitomized the primordial darkness. Anthropomorphized as a baboon he is depicted as greeting the rising sun.
