Meretseger was the goddess of the necropolis. She watched over the deceased in their tombs.

Her name means “She Who Loves Silence”. She was believed to live on the mountian which dominates the skyline at Ouaset (Thebes) and rises above the valley of the Kings.
She was a protective deity, but was also greatly feared. The workmen of the necropolis left numerous stelae dedicated to her. They believed she would strike down anyone who desecreated a tomb as well as anyone who committed a crime or broke an oath. It was thought that she could cause immediate blindness or inflict a snake or scorpion bite on the guilty party. However, she was merciful and would cure anyone who repented and promised to atone for their actions.

I love the way you draw your gods.  The style is beautiful, peaceful, with curves, few colors creating strong contrasts and harmony.  And I discovered many gods I didn't know! Thanks for sharing your art!
