Unusual image of the goddess Wadjyt as a lion-goddess

Unusual image of the goddess Wadjyt as a lion-goddess. She was normally depicted as a cobra, but in this bronze figure her cobra aspect is represented by the mummified bodies of ichneumon (a mongoose-like snake killer), which filled the hollow cast. The statue is supported by a clean shaven man, probably the person who dedicated it. Country of Origin: Egypt. Culture: Ancient Egyptian. Date/Period: Late Period, around 8th C BC. Place of Origin: Delta. Material Size: Cast bronze. Credit Line: Werner Forman Archive/ John Kluge Collection, Virginia . Location: 47
