Meaning of symbols ancient Egypt Tefnut

One of the oldest myths of creation depicts the Earth as a globe rising from the watery chaos of Nun.

On the globe rested Atum self generated, which in turn created Shu, the god of air, and Tefnut, goddess of wet steam: they brought the duality in the universe, giving rise to the sexual cycle, Atum was in some cases treated as Ra, the Sun God, so Tefnut was sometimes worshiped as his daughter.

As a representative of the underworld, is shown in the form of a goat or ram, the symbol then taken from Catholicism to represent evil, but evil has actually only ignorance.
