Which champion/warrior/wildcat (real or mythological) does your bookstore channel most?
Sekhmet – A mother goddess in the Old Kingdom, Sekhmet was associated with Ptah as his consort during the New Kingdom. But she is best known as the Eye of the Sun, the violent, dazzling and protecting aspect of the creator god. Her name, “the Powerful one,” is best illustrated by her fearful appearance as a lion-headed woman.
