{{Ancient Egyptian religion}}
'''Nefertem''' ({{IPAc-en|ˈ|n|ɛ|f|ər|ˌ|t|ɛ|m}}; possibly "beautiful one who closes" or "one who does not close"; also spelled '''Nefertum''' or '''Nefer-temu''') was, in [[Egyptian mythology]], originally a lotus flower at the creation of the world, who had arisen from the primal waters.<ref>Nefertem page at [http://www.egyptianmyths.net/nefertem.htm Ancient Egypt: the Mythology] retrieved June 21, 2008.</ref>
Nefertem represented both the first sunlight and the delightful smell of the Egyptian blue lotus flower, having arisen from the primal waters within an Egyptian blue water-lily, ''[[Nymphaea caerulea]]''. Some of the titles of Nefertem were "He Who is Beautiful" and "Water-Lily of the Sun", and a version of the ''[[Book of the Dead]]'' says:
{{quote|Rise like Nefertem from the blue water lily, to the nostrils of Ra (the creator and sungod), and come forth upon the horizon each day.}}
 
Nefertem was eventually seen as the son of the creator god [[Ptah]], and the goddesses [[Sekhmet]] and [[Bastet|Bast]] were sometimes called his mother. In [[art]], Nefertem is usually depicted as a beautiful young man having blue water-lily flowers around his head. As the son of Bastet, he also sometimes has the head of a [[lion]] or is a lion or cat reclining. The ancient Egyptians {{specify}} often carried small statuettes of him as good-luck charms.
 
There is a [[Head of Nefertem]] depicting [[Tutankhamun]] as a child.
