What is this? (Egyptian idol)


This one is from Egypt. I call it the boogeyman and it is exhibited in the mediterranean museum in Stockholm. Any idea of what on earth it represents? It is truly scary and very un-Egyptian to be honest.

No link or picture included. It sounds intriguing, what is it?

That's a damn scary goddess then! Very very old too. Do we know her function?

PS: I will be checking my cupboard every night because of this figurine.

Still doesn't work. Tried to find the image from your album and saw nothing related to it. I am quite interested in seeing what it is.
