Description

Small votive limestone stela decorated with incised relief. At the left stands a male worshipper who is named by a short inscription as Neheh. He wears a long wig and a flowing pleated kilt which extends almost to his ankles. At the right stands the lioness goddess Sekhmet who wears a sun disc and uraeus on her head. She stands with her feet together wearing a sheath dress. Her right arm is extended and holds a papyrus stalk scepter. Her left hand hangs by her side holding the traces of an ankh. The bottom of the stela serves as a ground line for both figures.
