This custom museum display showcases an absolute masterpiece- an Authentic Egyptian God of War Maahes XL statue dating from the Ptolemaic Period 332–30 B.C. This ancient Egyptian tomb statue features a beautifully carved Maahes extra large statue, depicted here as a human with a lion head, with a long tripartite wig, broad collar necklace, holding the Ankh in his left hand (symbol for life and to revive human souls in the afterlife) , and wearing solar disk and uraeus-cobra headdress - The Uraeus is the stylized, upright form of an Egyptian cobra used as a symbol of sovereignty, royalty, deity and divine authority in ancient Egypt. The Sun Disc (Aten) is a symbol of god Ra. The deified Aten is the focus of the monotheistic religion of Atenism established by Amenhotep IV, who later took the name Akhenaten (died ca. 1335 BCE) in worship and recognition of Aten, the creator, giver of life, and nurturing spirit of the world.
Maahes was a deity associated with war, protection, and weather, as well as that of knives, lotuses, and devouring captives. His cult was centered in Taremuand Per-Bast, the cult centers of Sekhmet and Bast respectively. The male lion hieroglyphic was used in words such as prince, strength, and power.
Bands of carved hieroglyphic inscriptions cover the dorsal pillar at back (usually a passage from the Book of the Dead) .
