The real problem I have with ancient Egypt is that I wasn't there OMG | :OMG:

My impression is that Sekhmet is the leonine aspect of Bast/et, or vice-versa.

In reality, even with the best archaeological evidence, it is often hard to discern how/when/where the overdetermined multiple layers of iconic representations originated, and which were salient for different social classes in different periods.

There is often a continuity in "little tradition" iconography that is probably "lost to us" forever in the shadows of "great tradition" semiotics.

Ancient geo-politics, trade routes, unique cultural contacts, top-down re-formulations of iconography (as, for example, the Mesopotamian priest of Bel-Marduk, Berosus, performed for Ptolemy I Soter of Egypt) ... it's a soup for nuts I always find tasty Smile | :)

btw, the image of a male human-lion chimera is of great interest to me, going back to the ivory Löwenmensch figurine of the Hohlenstein-Stadel circa 40,000 BCE [^] ... and its many later manifestations, as in the headgear of Herakles, the lion-headed man encircled by twining serpents in the Mithraic tradition, etc.
