Tawaret

|

By Morningbird

Tawaret is an ancient Egyptian Goddess associated with women, infants and childbirth. Her appearance is a composite with the head of a hippopotamus, the tail of a crocodile and the body of a lion, with features of a heavily pregnant woman. Like Bes images of Tawaret were often kept in the home as protective amulets.
