Exhibition of The Mighty Sekhmet
Egypt is closer than you think. Thanks to a generous collaboration with the Egyptian Museum in Turin, the statue of the lion-headed goddess with a woman's body is on display on an entirely exceptional basis at the Archaeological Museum in Bologna.
From the height of its 2.13 meters, the statue will introduce you to a tour of the Egyptian collection, making you feel the same ancient excitement that the priests of Ancient Egypt must have felt when they entered the courtyard of the "Temple of Millions of Years" at Thebes, where the statue played the role of protector.
