A New Kingdom statue of the female deity Sekhmet, the jealous, quick to anger goddess whose name means "Powerful one." Statues of the goddess were popularly commissioned by Kings and commoners as talismans against bad fortune. The clay figurine shows the god seated in robes bearing her tight fitting collared necklace and ribbed robed. The lion head, snout, and ears are clearly discernible while the form of her human female body is delicately emerges in subtle curves from the mass. The whole sculpture forms a pleasing L canted gently backward, mounted on a lacquered wooden display block. Upper Egypt, circa 1500 BCE.
