Image of Sekhmet from Ancient Origins

The lion-headed Sekhmet was one of the oldest members of the ancient Egyptian pantheon. Associated with power and might, she was depicted sometimes with the solar disk on her head, and carried an ankh or a papyrus sceptre. At Memphis, her cult centre, she was perceived as thr destroyer, and worshiped along with Ptah, her consort the creator, and the healer Nefertum.
