Her name is derived from the Egyptian word "Sekhem" (which means "power" or "might") and is often translated as the "Powerful One" or "She who is Powerful". She is depicted as a lion-headed woman, sometimes with the addition of a sun disc on her head. Her seated statues show her holding the ankh of life, but when she is shown striding or standing she usually holds a sceptre formed from papyrus (the symbol of northern or Lower Egypt) suggesting that she was associated primarily with the north. However, some scholars argue that the deity was introduced from Sudan (South of Egypt) where lions are more plentiful.HATHOR is one of the most famous goddesses of Ancient Egypt She was originally a personification of the Milky Way, which was considered to be the milk that flowed from the udders of a heavenly cow (linking her with Nut, Bat and Mehet-Weret). As time passed she absorbed the attributes of many other goddesses but also became more closely associated with Isis, who to some degree usurped her position as the most popular and powerful goddess. Yet she remained popular throughout Egyptian history. More festivals were dedicated to her and more children were named after her than any other god or goddess of Ancient Egypt. Her worship was not confined to Egypt and Nubia. She was worshipped throughout Semitic West Asia, Ethiopian, Somlia and Libya, but was particularly venerated in the city of Byblos.HORUS was born to the goddess Isis after she retrieved all the dismembered body parts of her murdered husband Osiris, except his penis, which was thrown into the Nile and eaten by a catfish, or sometimes depicted as instead by a crab, and according to Plutarch's account used her magic powers to resurrect Osiris and fashion a phallus to conceive her son (older Egyptian accounts have the penis of Osiris surviving).BABOON in ancient Egypt, was the deification of the hamadryas baboon, one of the animals present in ancient Egypt. His name is usually translated as "bull of the baboons", roughly meaning "chief of the baboons". Since baboons exhibit many human characteristics, it was believed in early times, at least since Prehistoric Egypt, that they were deceased ancestors. In particular, alpha males were identified as deceased rulers, referred to as the "great white one", since hamadryas baboon alpha males have a notable light grey streak. For example, Narmer is depicted in some images as having transformed into a baboon.Height : 14 cm / 5.51 inchChest Width : 3.2 cm / 1.25 inchColor: As Shown In Pictures Payment : We Accept PayPalShipment : DHL fast Shipping 4-12 days with track number - We Only Depend on the EXPRESS SHIPPING.Returns : We refund you money after your return the piece at the same condition as shipped .Region : EGYPT Condition: As Shown at Pictures - Original Condition, Material: Stone
