Summary[edit]

Description

Ancient Egyptian goddess Isis, wife of Osiris. Isis is usually represented as a woman with the throne-hieroglyph on her head, symbolizing her as the wife of Osiris, the king of the afterlife. Isis can also be represented as a bird (called a kite) wearing the same headdress. In another form, Isis bears the headdress used by Hathor, consisting of a sun-disk and cow horns.[1] This image is partially based on images of Isis from the tomb of Nefertari, en:QV66.
