Kebehwet

Kebehwet is an Egyptian serpent Goddess. She is the daughter of Anubis, the God of the dead, and played a role in funerary rites. Kebehwet poured water on the heart of the deceased to refresh and purify it. This practice was at first only identified with kings, but was eventually extended to all people.
