Kebechet Egyptian Goddess by JaneEden Kebechet Egyptian Goddess by JaneEden
Painted in CS4 using a wacom intuos3 tablet and pen

One of the least known goddess in Egyptian Mythology.

Here we see Kebechet after she has carried out her duties. She is the ancient Egytian goddess who personified the purification through water.

Kebechet plays an important role in the funeral cult. Her appearance is that of a snake usually with a snakes head (a cobra) on a woman's body.

She holds the hes-vase, which is a ceremonial vase used in purifications when preparing the dead for their afterlife.

I hope you like this everyone, hugs Jane xx

Leon you are amazing and always come to take a look at my art, I am so honoured my friend. Yes I think of you when I am painting because I know how you love anything ancient Egypt. As you know my mother always wished she could visit there, but sadly never did. She has been so interested in it since she was a child. She, like you is really pleased to see my Egyptian art, and yes I think I will concentrate on it for a while, all to do with the digital painting practice. hugs Jane xx :hug: :love:
