Sekhmet was believed to protect the pharaoh in battle and destroy his enemies with arrows of fire. Hot desert winds were believed to be this Goddess breath, and her body was said to take on the bright glare of the midday sun.
The priests of Sekhmet were specialists in the field of medicine, arts linked to ritual and magic. They were also trained surgeons of remarkable calibre. Tame lions were kept in temples dedicated to Sekhmet. An ancient Greek historian called Aelian said: In Egypt, they worship lions, and there is a city called after them. The lions have temples and numerous spaces in which to roam, and they eat to the accompaniment of song.
Sekhmet was also the sister of Bast. Together the twin sisters formed the "Yin Yang" of Egyptian religion, Sekhmet, depicted as a young woman with the head of a lioness, being the destructive force, and Bast, shown with the head of domestic cat, being the positive force. For those of you who love wine; the blood-red wine of Upper Egypt was called the Wine of Sekhmet, while the white wine of Lower Egypt was the Wine of Bast.
