Ptah is an Egyptian deity and considered the demiurge of Memphis who existed before all other things and, by his will, thought the world into existence. He is the husband of Sekhmet and the father of Nefertum and was also regarded as the father of the sage Imhotep. Ptah is considered to be the patron of craftsmanship, metalworking, carpenters, shipbuilders, sculpture and architecture . He bears many epithets that describe his role in ancient Egyptian religion and its importance in society at the time; Ptah the beautiful face, Ptah lord of truth, Ptah master of justice, Ptah who listens to prayers, Ptah master of ceremonies and Ptah lord of eternity.
