Fractionally less battered Kat? :-)

There are so many of these AIII Sekhmet statues, both standing and enthroned- and all in various degrees of damage it seems. My home museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, has only a head sans solar disc. This was found in a French stableyard & was used as a mounting block so ppl could get on the horses! The stableboys cared for Her by polishing Her with bootblack. Poor mistreated Sekhmet. :( But they are all powerful in their own way, despite the damage. Thank you for this addition to my collection.
