The Egyptian blue lotus is a symbol of creation, rebirth, and the sun. In ancient Egyptian mythology, the blue lotus was believed to have been the first object to emerge from the primordial waters of chaos at the beginning of time. The sun was also believed to have risen from the petals of the blue lotus, which was associated with Ra, the ancient Egyptian Neter or force of nature associated with the sun.


The blue lotus was also connected to the afterlife. It was believed that Osiris, the force of nature associated with the afterlife, would emerge from the petals of the blue lotus to greet the souls of the deceased as they entered the underworld. The blue lotus was often depicted in funerary art, such as tomb paintings and carvings, as a symbol of the journey from life to the afterlife.
