What is Mehen?
The Mehen snake was an ancient Egyptian mythological creature considered a powerful protector of the sun god Ra. It is said to have been created by the goddess Isis to protect Ra during his nightly journeys through the underworld.
Mehen is often depicted as a coiled lion-headed ouroboros snake and is considered a symbol of rebirth and protection. It is believed to have the power to ward off evil spirits and protect the wearer from harm. In ancient Egyptian culture, the Mehen snake was a common motif in jewelry and other ornaments, including pottery and murals. Its image is often used as an amulet or talisman to provide protection and bring good luck to the wearer.
