Her name meaning ‘The Powerful One’ is a Goddess of Illness & War as well as a Daughter of Ra/Re. Thus, a Goddess of Healing. With the Body of a Female & the head of a lion, she is as fierce as she is protecttive. When satisfied, life & health are balanced, at peace. Almost as she is often represented : Appeased & calmy seated. When dissatisfied, chaos. Physicians were often referred to as ‘Priests of Sakhmet’ due to her association with healing & many of our surviving statues depicting Sekhmet are from the time & from the funerary temple of Amenhotep III.
