The Goddess Isis

The goddess Isis, who symbolized motherhood, was the wife of the god Osiris and mother of the god Horus. She is seated, and shown wearing a sun-disk between cow’s horns, a crown also associated with the goddess Hathor. A uraeus (cobra) is attached at the brow. In her right hand, she holds an ankh, symbol of life. On the original, an inscription runs around the base, consisting of an invocation offering to Isis by the Chief Scribe Psammetik. This statue was discovered in the tomb of Psammetik at Saqqara in 1863.
