Statue of Sakhmet, Egyptian New Kingdom, Dynasty 18

I love Sakhmet. She was the Egyptian goddess of war. I find it unexpected to find a goddess of war, but it actually makes perfect sense. Sakhmet has the head of a lioness. The ancient Egyptians were very familiar with lions. They knew that the likenesses are the hunters and they work together. Just like warriors.
