The Egyptian goddess Sekhmet comes around for a second go to punish mankind.
It looks like something out of WB Yeats's "The Second Coming" - "a shape with lion body and the head of a man / A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun...And what rough beast, it's hour come round at last / Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"
Bethlehem. Well, Egypt is in the vicinity at least.
A very well done picture.
Ah, Sekhmet. She slaughtered dozens in blind range, flooded the sands of Egypt with blood, and was tricked into a druken stuper, where she lsot her lust for death.
She is above all my favorite of the Egyptian dieties.
