There were several Gods of ancient Egypt associated with the ram either having ram heads or only horns. In particular, Re was a ram-headed deity surmounted by a sun disk.  Harmakhet was another depiction and he was also a variant of Horus. He had the form of a sphinx and the head of a ram. This was the God of the dawn and the morning sun. 
The spring equinox is a period when the hours of day equal the hours of the night. Religious rituals are celebrated on the sunrise of this day with the anticipation of the triumph of increasing days of light that are heralded by the month of Aries the Ram wherein the Sun is exalted. The symbol of the Ram is an inspiration because of what it stands for. Here it is presented in ivory form.
