Ptahmassu K.M. Nofra-Uaa is an internationally noted iconographer whose celebrated work has been featured in publications including Softpower Magazine and best-selling author Nicki Scully's book Sekhmet: Transformation in the Belly of the Goddess. His icons are highly coveted by individuals and institutions, so much so that the waiting list for new commissions is nearly four years long. He is a sought-after speaker for podcasts and publications with a polytheist perspective, and has influenced international artists who credit him with having compelled their Kemetic or magical inspirations. His work has also been lauded by professional Egyptologists for its unique yet authentic voice.

He is the founder of Icons of Kemet, dedicated to the crafting of unique God-images for use in worship of the ancient Gods of Egypt.

A spokesperson for devotional polytheism, his poetic hymns have been published in the volumes of Neos Alexandria/Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Lord of the Carnelian Temple, A Devotional In Honour of Sobek (2018), and A Silver Sun and Inky Clouds, the Devotional Anthology for Djehuty and Set (2018).

 

 

 His highly anticipated book Sacred Verses: Entering the Labyrinth of the Gods (2021) provides polytheists and Pagans the opportunity to delve deeply into the initiatory and magical philosophy guiding the creation of his venerated icons. He is a priest of the Temple of Isis California, a legally recognized sanctuary of the Goddess Isis in the United States, and a Priest-Hierophant in the international Fellowship of Isis, whose aims include the celebration of the Egyptian Goddess Isis and related Goddess traditions from around the globe. 

As a speaker and writer on various aspects of devotional polytheism, Ptahmassu's work has been featured in Isian News,

the Official Newsletter of the Fellowship of Isis, and in Isis-Seshat, A Quarterly Journal of the Fellowship of Isis. His works

of poetry and prose manifest from his continued mission to serve the ancient Gods as living Gods, and in so doing to encourage others in the rehabilitation and revival of humankind's polytheistic religious traditions.
