When we say striking we mean it. She is a deity in the form of a giant cobra.
Snake deities can either be nice or nasty. Actually this one is both. Mostly she is a beneficial protection deity who once looked after the infant Horus in the swamps as he was hidden from his uncle Set.
But she can also be a spiteful spitter. She has her own coiled snake which is trained to spit poison at whomsoever she directs. This may be good or bad for you – she can protect you from enemies – or the enemy might be you. Do not put your boots on until you have checked inside them.
