An amalgamation of various Egyptian creation myths. The heron, Benu, is acociated with creation and the sun. The solar disc on his head (should have a cobra ureaus instead it's based on a brown tree snake) belongs to Re-Horakty and various other deities that come under the heading 'Eye of Re'. Benu's fishing out an ank, symbol of life, from the waters of creation. In some of the creation myths a god or lotus flower emerges from the water to bring light and order to the world. It's common in myths in that part of the world to begin with the world as a dark watery chaos.
