Seated Statue of the Lioness Goddess Sekhmet

Seated Statue of the Lioness Goddess Sekhmet
The lioness is known as the mother who defends her children, so she was chosen by the ancient Egyptians to be the goddess of war, who creates fear and horror in the hearts of the country's enemies. They called her Sekhmet, "the strong one."
This perfectly sculpted statue depicts the goddess Sekhmet as a woman with the head of a lioness seated on a high cubic chair. The head was originally surmounted by a crown fixed in the hole on top. The features of the lioness are well defined and the mane is sculpted with careful detail. There is also a wig with long lappets hanging on the figure's chest; both hands are placed near the knees, the right hand is flat, and the left is clasped and once held a staff.
