Description

Sekhmet is the goddess of healing and at the same time a warrior goddess. For this reason, she was represented in ancient Egypt with a human body, with the head of a lioness, wearing the Uraeus that associated her with royalty and with the Wadjet, as well as the solar disc.

From ancient times, she was often related to Ra, as some Egyptians identified her as his daughter because she was a solar deity.

On the other hand, she was recognised as the protector of the pharaohs, whom she led to war in order to die. Although, once death overtook them, she continued to protect them into the afterlife.

Sekhmet was a goddess, daughter of the sun god Ra or the eye of Ra. According to the cosmogony of Memphis, she was the mother of the lotus god Nefertum and wife of Ptah, the god of craftsmen.

Her importance, eradicated among those who acted with the negative intentions of the power contained in the god Ra. It was said that the hot winds found in the desert were related to her fiery breath.

It was said that while she inflicted plagues and diseases through her fury, she could also remove them and cause health, which made her both desired and feared.
