This custom museum display showcases an Authentic Egyptian Warrior goddess Sekhmet statue dating from the Ptolemaic Period 332–30 B.C. This ancient Egyptian tomb statue features a beautifully sculpted Sekhmet statue, depicted here as a human with a lion head, with a long tripartite wig, broad collar necklace, holding a sceptre in the form of a papyrus (A symbol of authority, power and control), 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.

The headdress prominently features a glazed heart-scarab in bas-relief engraving, symbolizing self-creation or rebirth.
Sekhmet was associated with destruction. According to myth, she was the fiery eye of Ra, which he sent against his enemies - As the cobra on the brow of the king, rearing to protect him. Her name means 'she who is powerful'. She is commonly represented as a lioness-headed woman because the Egyptians observed that it is the female lion who is the hunter.

A vertical band of carved hieroglyphic inscriptions cover the dorsal pillar at back (usually a passage from the Book of the Dead).
