The Four-Toed Statue

In his latest column on Lost for, Jeff Jensen points out an interesting tidbit buried in ABC's episode summary for the season finale. Wagering which Egyptian diety is depicted in that four-toed statue on the island? If your money was on Anubis, Sobek, or Set, I'm afraid you won't be walking away a winner. (Me, I was convinced it was Anubis.)

So who is it? To be honest, I don't think I ever would have guessed.

I have to say, Sobek makes more sense to me (especially visually) than Tawaret.
The image in the Wikipedia link looks a bit like the statue, I thought. Of course, now we've got the rest of the year to wonder what this means...
