This piece reflects the four avatars of divinity: in the center of the cow Hathor with, on his right, a woman sitting - Nebet-Hetepet Iousas or - symbols of the goddess of love relationships; under the nose of the animal, the cobra Wadjet, a woman's head and on his left, Sekhmet, lion-headed. Dating from the Late Period, relatively crudely, this monument carved from quartzite measuring 67 centimeters high, 73 long and 33 wide. Cow, woman, lion and snake, these were the four "faces" of Hathor.
