KEBECHET, GODDESS OF FRESHNESS & PURIFICATION - She was known as the wandering goddess or the lost child. She is the daughter of Anubis & Anput and was thought to help her father in his role as the god of embalming, she was particularly associated with embalming fluid used during mummification. Often depicted as a snake or as a woman with the head of a snake. Sometimes she takes the form of an ostrich, linking her to the goddess of Ma´at who represented justice & balance in the universe.

Detail of Tutankhamen’s Outermost Coffin, photographed by Harry Burton, 1926. The golden vulture and cobra goddesses of Upper and Lower Egypt were wrapped in a wreath of cornflowers clasped in olive leaves, which fell to pieces when it was removed, after 3,000 years. I like to think his wife wrapped it there as a final goodbye.
