Wadj-wer is an Egyptian god of fertility whose name means the "Great Blue-Green". Sometimes depicted in androgynous form, he is a personification of the Mediterranean Sea or of the major lakes of the Nile delta. He is depicted as carrying the ankh and a loaf. Wadj-wer is often depicted as being pregnant and is associated with the richness of the waters of the Nile delta.
