Amonet was the female form of the original deity, Amun who was without a gender since it was a concept. Amun/Amonet originally were the aspects of the primordial concept of air, in the Ogdoad cosmogony. Of the name for primordial air meaning, (one who) is hidden, the male aspect is Amun, and the female aspect is Amonet. Amonet, as the female aspect, became increasingly identified with Iusaaset, Atum's shadow. By becoming identified as Iusaaset, Amonet was regarded as the mother of creation and she was seen as owning the tree from which all life emerged and returned, the tree of life, an acacia tree said to reside on the desert's edge. Her name is wrote to the left in egyptian hieroglyphs.
