Sekhmet (Sakhmet) is an Egyptian goddess depicted with the body of a woman with a lion head wearing a sun disk. She is one of the oldest known Egyptian deities. Her name means: “She who is powerful” and she was the goddess of the desert sun, plague, chaos, war, and healing. For her friends she could avert plague and cure disease. In order to stay on her good side, they offered her food and drink and played music for her. As a result, this often-ferocious deity was called the “lady of terror” and also the “lady of life”.
During the reign of Amenhotep III, there were more than 600 statues of Sekhmet created. Most of them featured her seated with a sun disk head dress. Most reproduction statues dramatize her portrayal as a fierce warrior. Our statues take a more traditional approach.
