Description
A masterpiece of Egyptian bronzework, this powerful statue depicts Sekhmet, the lion- headed goddess of war, standing against a sturdy obelisk. She holds a lotus staff in her hand and is crowned by the sun disc of Aten and the protective cobra Uraeus. The statue bears an inscription that translates, "May Wadjet give life to Hor-Nefer-Pe, son of Ankh-Per-Hery". Whoever dedicated this piece must have been a wealthy man, for it is sculpture of the highest quality. In her fierce and silent majesty, Sekhmet seems to epitomize the grandeur and mystery of eternal Egypt, a land where goddesses walked among men. - (FZ.021)
