A goddess of war?

July 10, 2013

I recently learned, to my surprise, that the ancient Egyptians worshiped a goddess of war.

 

Her name was Sekhmet, and she was depicted with the head of a lioness.

I am fascinated that the ancient Egyptians would use a female deity to represent war.

Any thoughts?
