Mut


Mut
   Egyptian goddess. Consort of Amun. She is usually depicted as a female figure with a vulture headdress surmounted by the double crown of Egypt, but she is also portrayed with the head of a lioness. Her sacred animal was a lion, and her principal place of worship was her temple at Karnak linked to the main temple of Amun. The temple was adorned by many statues of the goddess Sakhmet, who was thus linked to Mut.
