Sticking it to Evil

Here I am, sitting on a basket slightly right of the center of this magic wand. Along with all the other gods and spirits drawn here, we protect the place where the wand is kept or used. [Egyptian magic wand (apotropaic wand) made from hippopotamus ivory. New Kingdom (ca. 19th-17th centuries BCE)] (tagged: Heqat (Heket))
