In art  Nefertum  is  normally  anthropomorphic  heavy  a  head-dress  in  the  process of the  lotus  plant,  embroidered  with  two prides  and  two  necklace counterpoises (Hathoric symbolisation of fertility).

God Nefertum sometimes described lion-headed  by  connection  with  leonine mother goddesses: at Memphis god Nefertum is the son of the lioness-goddess Sakhmet and, though it is never explicitly expressed, he  turns  by  significance  the  child  of the  union  of  the  goddess  and Ptah.  At Buto in the Delta Nefertum is the special son  of  Wadjet,  a  cobra-goddess  who  can have leonine form. Likewise the feline goddess Bastet has a require to being the gods mother.  As  a  child,  he  can  be depicted seated on a lotus blossom, aware of the young sun god.
