Sekhmet: Goddess of Strength and Love

pencil drawing of lion head egyptian goddess sekhmet by artist phoebe thomasson

It’s January. I needed something a bit stronger; you know how it is!? I was not to be disappointed. Look what I found! I am studying the Egyptian Lion Goddess, Sekhmet. You may have seen her in your travels. I am now seeing her in my visions!

She is a patron of the arts, amongst many other things (she has hundreds of names!) and encourages her image to be reproduced by artists. So watch this space as I delve into the head of a lion and the body of a woman. Powerful stuff!
