On offer here is a stunning replicafragmentof the powerful and feistyEgyptian goddess Sekhmet.

Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone, Sekhmet has been given a well developed aged slate blackpatina. She is mounted upon a polished, felt lined stand.

Background information

Sekhmet - her name translates to ' the one who is powerful'.......a direct link to the attributes of the lioness, the most feared predator in the ancient Nile valley and the inspiration behind Sekhmet's form.

Sekhmet was known throughout the land as one of the most polarizing of Egyptian deities whose power could be harnessed as a protector and a healer,howeverthe reverse attributes were also to be carefully handled.

Her power was sought by the Pharaoh in times of war asshe was known as adivine warrior goddesswho wouldproject dread into the hearts of the enemies of Egypt. One of her many daunting titles 'the one before whom evil trembles' is befitting of her capacity for rage.

Her very breath was said to have created the deserts.

Also known asone of thedaughters of Ra,the sun disc can be present inher iconography, a feature shared with Hathor andtheless aggressive cat goddess Bastet.

Her husband was the god of arts and creativity - Ptah of Memphis.
