This finely hand-carved Egyptian Lioness Goddess Sekhmet wooden statue is made in Luxor – one of Upper Egypt's charming riverside cities. This fine work of art is full of intricate detail that can only be carved by expert hands. The statue truly captures the bold and mighty spirit of a lioness – Sekhmet's animal form.
The Ancient Egyptian goddess Sekhmet is one of the most powerful and influential deities in Egyptian mythology.
She is the goddess of the sun, war, destruction, plagues, and healing. She was the wife of God Ptah, the god of creation and wisdom, and a member of the Memphite triad cult center. She was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them in warfare as she also assumed the role of goddess of war and the destroyer of the enemies of the sun god Re. Yet she is also associated with healing and medicine.
To honor Sekhmet light a candle and some sweet, floral, or incense (amber, sandalwood, frankincense, lotus, or especially Morning Star's iris incense are all good). Present a meaningful offering. Simple offerings are fine, but should not be hasty or thoughtless.
