In the Egyptian pantheon, the goddess Sekhmet was bodyguard to the pharaohs. She was fierce and feminine, shown as a lithe woman with a lion’s head. At the Temple of Amenhotep III, once the biggest mortuary center around Thebes, eight statues of Sekhmet were discovered. Made from black granite, two show the feline goddess standing upright and the rest seated on a throne, it was once a statue of Amenhotep III, the 13th-century BC pharaoh who took Egypt to the height of its power.
