Pakhet

April 30th, 2008 by sabrina

Pakhet is an Egyptian Goddess of the desert. Her name means “she who scratches”, corresponding with her representation as a lioness. She was also called the “Goddess at the entrance of the wadi“, referring to the lion’s habit of frequenting the watering holes at the edge of the desert. As with other lioness Goddesses, hers was a protective role.
