SEKHMET is the female consort of Ptah depicted with the body of a woman and the head of a lioness. Her name literally means "The Power" In many of the temples Sekhmets face is found with blue pigment, connecting her also with Sirius. It was felt that a few of her statues were actually portals to Sirius. She stands for motherhood, unconditional love and tough love. This is the kind of love that patiently lets a lion cub chew on her ear until it goes on too long or gets too rough and then she gives the cub a woop .This tough love gave her the title of a warrior and champion of the gods. Although she is a potent and feared god, the loving side was known to be potent for healing.
