That is interesting. There are also statues showing the queen dressed in an outfit that has feathered wings wrapped about the body. I'm thinking of a statue of Queen Tiye from the Louvre, and I think there's a 25th dynasty statue of Takoshet (maybe later even?) showing such a dress as well.

The idea of Mut wrapping her wings about the Queen in protection makes sense in that case as well.


I would like to see that does anybody have photos of these statues?[/quote]

Just for some record, what are the other names of the goddess Nekhbet, and Mut, if there are any?

As a side fact, the vultures are the highest flying birds in the world. They live by the cliffs and can ride the wind really high.
