Shu and Tefnut

Shu is a male god who is paired with his sister, Tefnut. Together they represent two fundamental principles of human existence. Shu symbolizes dry air and the force of preservation. Tefnut symbolizes moist or corrosive air that brings about change, creating the concept of time. Shu and Tefnut are the offspring of Re (or Atum, a form of the sun god), a primeval cosmic god, progenitor of the elements of the universe.
