The sculpture we present is a reproduction of an existing figure in the Louvre Museum. It is made of mineral agglutinated with resin imitating lapis lazuli, a semi-precious stone highly valued in Pharaonic Egypt and linked to the matrix that gives rise to the universe.The goddess Tueris was, in ancient Egypt, the goddess of fertility, linked to births and motherhood. Her name in Egypt was Ta-urt, which means “the great one”.She was generally represented with the head of a hippopotamus or a woman with large breasts, a crocodile’s tail and lion’s paws. She is often depicted on beds and in glasses for pouring milk. Ceramic amulets of her worn by pregnant women abounded.
