Fueling the Fire: An Ilana & Jacob Theory

I believe that the statue on the Island Is supposed to be the God Sobek.

Sobek was a crocodile god, usually depicted as a crocodile or a human male with the head of a crocodile.

Sobek brings together elements that has been separated by evil. The Pyramid Texts and The Book of the Dead both cite Sobek's assistance of the deceased. He restores the deceased's eyes and mouth, protects him/her from Set and leads them to 'heaven'.

Some believe that Sobek had a four-fold nature, in that he represented the four elemental gods:
Ra - Fire
Shu - Air
Geb - Earth
Osiris - Water

Anywho I hope that this helps.

Interesting hypothesis! :) I would have to agree with Katie about the statue representing Sobek instead of Sekhmet though.

The recap on the official site saws that the statue is of the Egyptian goddess Taweret.
