Hapi was the ancient Egyptian god of the flooding of the Nile, depositing the rich silt along the banks of the great river, allowing the Egyptians to grow crops. He provided fertile soil in what would otherwise be a desert, as a result he was also considered a god of fertility. He was thought of as a caring father, helping to maintain the balance of the cosmos, and keep the universe a harmonious place.
The outer heart shape depicts his caring nature, the blue represents the waters of the nile..and the striations in the jasper are the silt itself. The entwining wraps echo the growing of the crops along the banks of the Nile.
