Isis Suckling Horus

Isis, goddess of motherhood and the wife of the god Osiris, is shown suckling her child, the god Horus. Isis was also considered a funerary goddess associated with Osiris’ death and rebirth. Often depicted wearing the throne-sign on her head, this statue shows Isis wearing cow’s horns and a sun disk, a crown first associated with Hathor but later worn by Isis as well. Horus sits on his mother’s lap and wears the sidelock of youth.
