Statue of Cobra-Headed Goddess

Em hotep all!

I attended the Ramses II exhibition at the Australian Museum today and noticed there two statues of Cobra-headed Goddesses with Jackal slippers (all the description said was that they were statues of a cobra-headed Goddess from the Ptolemaic period and lists Saqqara).

Hopefully the photos work, any ideas about these statues, who they could be? (Hopefully the images work)

My main guess would be Wadjet, but I am very puzzled by the Jackal slippers, they are amazing!

Now I want jackal slippers. Can I have jackal slippers?


Making jackal slippers would be difficult turn-shoes.

I wonder if it is a mix of Egyptian and Greek style like “mermaid Anubis” (Anubis with a snake bottom half found in catacombs in Alexandria) was a mix of Egyptian, Greek and Roman.

Hermes and his winged shoes come to mind but I’m just speculating and haven’t a clue.

Lol Jackal slippers would be awesome!
