Aset, Nebet Het, Nut and Hethert are liminal deities and psychopomps as they all  are the Ladies of the West/Afterlife/Amenti goddesses.  Aset and Nebet Het together help the sun rise and set which is a very liminal time. 

I'd also include Wepwawet and Yinepu as well for their liminal roles.

Em hotep.

Others have already explained it.  So I'll just mention a book:

Symbol and Magic in Egyptian Art by Richard H. Wilkinson talks about symbols of numbers and colors and other things.

Em hotep,

Broken shrine items can just be thrown away.  You could place them in a separate  bag and then throw them away too, I suppose.  Then, if you can, replace the item.

I have a section for Ra on my website.

Ra is one of my Beloveds.  I offer Him water.  I'm also working on an anthology for Him.

Nebet Het likes chocolate, cheesecake, strawberry  flavored pastries, pastries, cookies, brownies, vegetables, fruits, beef, bread, coca-cola and sprite. 

Taboos: pork, fish (as Wesir's consort/mourner) and the color yellow

Nekhtet and Congratulations!

Wow!  Khonsu and Bast-as-Wadjet!  That's amazing!

Wepwawet is associated with the constellation Orion,  at least according to an inscription from the Temple  of Philae. 

I love the idea of the star Jackal.  It also makes me  think of the primordial god, Wepwawet-Ra.

For epithets of Bast, I really like "She with the Powerful Heart" and "Golden One" (LAGG).

Okay.  Thanks for clearing that up. 

The goddess of the arts and creativity is mostly Hethert as the goddess of creation, love, joy etc. 

I personally see Aset as She is my "Hethert" in my personal practice.  I have Aset Amenti and She is big and complex with so many intersections with Nut,  Nebet Het and  Hethert as the Celestial Cow, Tree  Goddess  and Lady of the West. 

For other ones:
Ptah--God of Creation  and Craftsmen, Sculpting
Khnum--God of Potters 
Aset, Nebet Het, Nit and Tayet--weaving (although mostly clothing for  gods and the dead)
Seshat and Djehuty--Writing
Aset, Nebet Het and Hethert--creative personal experience

As for Sekhmet, I would see Her as helping nourish passion within creating art, but maybe that's more Hethert, ymmv.  Sekhmet does have an aspect as the Celestial Cow, (which is  the Heavenly Cow/Creator/Mother of Ra/Lady of the Stars and  Ancestors). 

Um...I wanted to point out something.  Anthropomorphic is human form or human characteristics (physical).  If you mean full animal form, that term is zoomorphic. 

I don't know if there is a term for animal headed human. 

This is really late, but I'm glad you found it useful!

Shield with Mom?  Nope, she isn't the warrior type.  #1 reason why I don't like that piece. And that would explain why I didn't ever like it Bezenwepwy

I just wanted to note a few things about Aset. 

Aset is an Eye of Ra.  She is a lioness, a cobra and a leopard/panther.  She slays enemies with flame and magic. Every night She and Set slay the Serpent Enemy of the Gods (she uses magic, he uses a spear). 

She is shown with a scimitar at the Temple of Philae.  She has some epithets "Mistress of Battle", "Lady of the Saber/Sword" and "Who saves everyone she loves on the Battlefield".  She slays the enemies of Ra, Wesir and Heru.  She slays other enemies (comrades of Set) with magic, flame and knives within the Ptolemaic Jumilhac Papyrus. 

 In the LAGG, some weapons  are  listed for her:  bow and arrow, harpoon  and knives.  And at Philae, a sword. 

She's not a warrior or soldier like Sekhmet or Heru Wer. She normally uses magic and flame when destroying enemies, but she does have a protective, warrior-like nature. 

As for the statue, I wasn't sold on it either.  Until I read  this post by Sobekemiti:

I found in the Lexikon (LAGG, Band 1), a syncretism of Aset-Wadjet. 

I don't have any experiences with Her personally.

Em Hotep
Although Bast and Sekhmet are worshiped in different places, is there a "Sekhmet-Bast?"

Yes. There is a deity Sekhmet-Bast.  Some hymns are specifically to her from Dendera and one in the BOD translated by Margaret Murray in her book Ancient Religious Poetry.
