This is Sekhmet, a fierce goddess in the Egyptian pantheon. But as well as being the goddess of war and plague, she represented healing and medicine. As the patron of physicians and healers, the priests of Sekhmet became known as skilled doctors.

Freud’s work was often inspired and influenced by the mythological figures surrounding him and none would have been more relevant to the turbulent post-First World War period with the outbreak of Spanish Flu than this goddess of war, disease and medicine. See Sekhmet and more inspiring antiquities in our forthcoming exhibition 1920/2020: Freud & Pandemic, opening 19 May 2021.
