Egyptian Hippo Goddess of Fertility Taweret Statue
The hippo fertility Goddess
statue is one of the pre-dynastic images of the Egyptian Great Mother. Tauret
often appears pregnant and baring her teeth; a symbolic action of child bearing.
The Pharoah would pray to her in order to secure food in the next life.
This is a lovely statue
embellished with hieroglyphs around the bottom that's perfect for any birthing
room or where the devotee wishes to invoke the fertility and abundance of this
Egyptian Hippo Goddess.
