Feel the magic with this most unique and beautiful Egyptian artwork of the Goddess Isis on Papyrus.
Great mother Isis, the goddess of healing and magic, was crucial to ancient Egyptian religious beliefs. She is known today by her Greek name Isis; however, the ancient Egyptians called her Aset. Her name translates to “Queen of the Throne” which is reflected in her headdress, which is typically a throne. Isis can also be seen as a winged goddess who brought fresh air to the underworld when she went to meet her husband.
Isis was very important to the ancient Egyptians because she had so many different powers. She was both the protector of women and the bringer of magic.
Papyrus is a material similar to thick paper that was used in ancient times as a writing surface. It was made from the pith of the papyrus plant. Apart from a writing and painting material, papyrus is used in the construction of other artifacts such as mats, rope, sandals and baskets.
