ELQET

Glancing back to the temple, where your attention is constantly drawn, Benjamin is now bewildered and fascinated with the silver statues of Selkis. Never before has such attention been given to this Goddess.

The four polished silver, life-size representations are placed between the four mounting ramps bridging the top most pool. In all their splendour they are recollections of the famous sphinx.

Front paws extended out, which in this case are arms that metamorphose into claws from the forearm down.

The head of a woman with large bare breasts wearing the nemes head cloth, but here the cobra sits as with the Pharaoh’s headdress.

Her six legs hug her scorpion-body (even though there should be eight) while the tail curls all the way back and so that her sting is resting on her head.

The strange element in this picture is that the sting is very obvious and present.

The sting was not normally portrayed by the Ancient Egyptians in most repre-sentations of this Goddess for obvious reasons.
