NEKHBET is an Egyptian Goddess who could take the form of a vulture, a cow, or a serpent. Her name means "she of Nekheb", the city over which she originally ruled. Nekhbet was a protector of the king and Upper Egypt, taking the same role as the serpent Goddess Wadjet in Lower Egypt. She came to be associated with the protection of all women in childbirth--the Egyptian hieroglyph for "mother" is a vulture. Her name is also seen as NECHBET.
