Isis was the Egyptian goddess of magic and protector of the pharaoh. In the legend of her husband Osiris, he was a good king who's throne was coveted by his evil brother Seth. Seth contrived to murder Osiris and dismember his body. Isis searched the length and breadth of Egypt to restore her husband, and Anubis created the first mummy. Osiris was brought back to life for one night so Isis could concieve the infant Horus, who would grow up to avenge his murdered father and become the god of Kingship. Isis is shown here in tyicla pose, seated on a throne with the infant Horus cradled to her breast. She wears the Cow horn and sun disc crown of Hathor.
