Sekhmet is an odd goddess of the highest degree.  She is sometimes equated with hathor.  There are very few statues and even fewer paintings of this goddess.  She is said to have come to Earth after Ra declared punishment on mankind.  See Hathor  The lion's head surely represents as vicious and ferocious an animal as the Egyptians could imagine.  There are people worshiped this goddess in her own right, but more people simply respected the power of the goddess and tried to stay out of her disfavor.
