Description

These prayer or devotional beads have been specifically handcrafted to honour of the lion headed Deity of ancient Egypt, Maahes or Sekhmet.

Maahes was an ancient Egyptian lion-headed god of war whose name means "he who is true beside her". He was seen as the son of the Creator God Ptah, as well as the feline goddess (Bast in Lower Egypt or Sekhmet in Upper Egypt) whose nature he shared. Maahes was a deity associated with war, protection, and weather, as well as that of knives, lotuses, and devouring captives. His cult was centred in Taremu and Per-Bast.

Sekhmet is a warrior goddess as well as goddess of healing. She is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It was said that her breath formed the desert. She was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them in warfare.

Made from Howlite, black glass beads, golden Czech Druc beads and bronze coloured charm and findings.

Total length approximately 45cm.

Can be used as a string or in circle format. Can also be worn.

Comes with organza bag for safe keeping.
