This is the Goddess Bastet
Bastet was the Goddess of cats & protection(sometimes known as the “cat of Ra”).
She was one of the daughters of the sun god, Ra and is associated with Ra’s instrument of vengeance, the sun-god’s eye. She was the goddess of warfare in Lower Egypt, the Nile River delta region, before the unification of the cultures of ancient Egypt. The two uniting cultures had deities that shared similar roles and usually the same imagery. In Upper Egypt, Sekhmet was the parallel warrior lioness deity to Bast
Bastet was the protector of The God Ra earning her the titles of Lady of Flame and Eye of Ra.
Ra has four daughters, Ma’at & Bastet are mostly drew without his sun disk but his two other daughters Sekhmet & Hathor are always drew with it. I have found no answer to why this is, if somebody knows why pleas let me know
