Title: Sekhmet as Hedgehog
Post by: S'ashasenu on June 02, 2019, 02:29:52 pm
So.. I have been trying to connect with Sekhmet lately, and recently I came across "Sekhmet as hedgehog".  Does anyone have information to this connection between hedgehogs and Sekhmet?  I thought She was usually associated with lions, so the hedgehog connection is really interesting to me.  Any information would be greatly appreciated!  :)

I believe Iuasses is connected with hedghogs. And that is a very large goddess that is the mother of Shu and Tefnut. So someone else might have information on her but I believe she is connected to Hethert and in turn Sekhmet.
