Hmmmmmmm 4 toes

Another strong contender for the identity of the statue has surfaced. Her name is Taweret and she is the goddess of fertility.
I'm digging the head piece and four toes.

If this is or isn't the identity of the statue I believe it's not really going to matter that much. I believe the important idea is that it appears there is an Egyptian connection to the island. This may be something that just adds colorful history to the island or it may come into play in future episodes. When you consider all the other hieroglyphs we've seen on the island and in the dharma stations, I think we will be learning a little bit more about the island Egypt connection.


  1. And, she's pregnant and probably nursing, it appears, and we know that's a big theme surrounding the powers of the island. Is this goddess stealing the mothers who get pregnant on the island ("they all die")?
