Sekhmet blesses Seti I by offering him her menat necklace. From Seti’s temple at Abydos, Second Hypostyle Hall, west wall. From the Oriental Institute’s marvellous collection of downloads, here:
http://oi.uchicago.edu/research/pubs/catalog/misc/sethos4.html
The text (from Rosalie David’s Guide To Religious Ritual at Abydos): “(I) praise thee in life, for thy nose, I protect thee a million times, over all the foreign lands, being under thy feet like Re forever.” (Davies points out the ankh “entwined” in the menat.)
