New Theory for Lost’s Four-Toed Statue Emerges


Another new theory has emerged on about a possible identity for the statue that the Lost gang saw in this week's episode: "Tawaret was the [Egyptian] goddess of protecting women during pregnancy and childbirth ... Right there we have a significant tie to the Island — somewhere during its history, women who were impregnated there and chose to have their babies, died during childbirth. We know that the statue as it existed when Sawyer and Co. saw it no longer exists in modern times, and we also know that the birth problem has been a modern problem for the Others. Now, whether it has anything to do with the destruction of this statue is unknown and unlikely, but it does seem as though this ancient statue might be closely linked with current Island happenings."
