Seller: the-best-products (123) 100%, Location: Luxor, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 232591148797 RARE ANTIQUE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN STATUE Of Isis 380–362 BcAbout The Object: The name Isis means "Throne".Her headdress is a throne. As the personification of the throne, she was an important representation of the pharaoh's power. The pharaoh was depicted as her child, who sat on the throne she provided. Her cult was popular throughout Egypt, but her most important temples were at Behbeit El Hagar in the Nile delta, and, beginning in the reign with Nectanebo I (380–362 BC), on the island of Philae in Upper Egypt.In the typical form of her myth, Isis was the first daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, goddess of the Sky, and she was born on the fourth intercalary day. She married her brother, Osiris, and she conceived Horus by him. Isis was instrumental in the resurrection of Osiris when he was murdered by Set. Using her magical skills, she restored his body to life after having gathered the body parts that had been strewn about the earth by Set.The first written references to Isis date back to the Fifth dynasty of Egypt. Based on the association of her name with the throne, some early Egyptologists believed that Isis's original function was that of throne-mother. However, more recent scholarship suggests that aspects of that role came later by association. In many African tribes, the throne is known as the mother of the king, and that concept fits well with either theory, possibly giving insight into the thinking of ancient Egyptians. -Height: 3.5 inch / 9 cm-Bottom Diameter: 1.77 inch / 4.5 cm-Origin: Egypt Condition: “As shown At picture”, Material: Stone, Provenance: Luxor
