Seller: 365dayes (63) 100%, Location: Luxor, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 323167920436 RARE EGYPTIAN ANCIENT EGYPT ANTIQUE ISIS GODS STATUE GODDESS CARVED STONE BCEInformation About This Item:Isis Was One of the Oldest Gods or Goddesses of Ancient Egypt but Her Origins Are Unclear. She Is Sometimes Thought to Have Originated in the Sinai but Is Is Also Likely That She Was First Worshipped as a Fetish in the Delta Area of Lower Egypt Around Busiris, the Location of the Oldest Known Cult Center to Osiris. However, Her Cult Was Not Limited to One Area, but Worshipped in Every Temple in the Land. in Fact, the First Shrine Dedicated Specifically to Her Was Built by Nectanebo Ii in Dynasty ThirtyIsisthe Cult of Isis, the Egyptian Goddess, Was Very Popular Throughout Egypt, and Beyond and She Became a Goddess of Almost Limitless Attributes. Isis Was Her Greek Name, but She Was Known to the Ancient Egyptians as Aset (Or Ast, Iset, Uset), Which Is Usually Translated as "(Female) of Throne" or "Queen of the Throne". Her Original Headdress Was an Empty Throne and as the Personification of the Throne She Was an Important Source of the Pharaoh's Power (As Descent Was to Some Degree Matrilineal). However, the Exact Meaning of Her Name Is Still Disputed. Plutarch Suggested That Her Name Meant "Knowledge" but Another Possible Translation Is "(Female) of Flesh", I.e. Mortal, Suggesting That Although She Was the Queen of the Gods, She Had Once Been a Mortal Woman. This Certainly Fits with the Mythology Surrounding the Ennead Which State That Isis and Her Husband, Osiris, Had Actually Ruled Egypt Before the Time of the Pharaohs. However, the Book of the Dead Describes Her as "She Who Gives Birth to Heaven and Earth, Knows the Orphan, Knows the Widow, Seeks Justice for the Poor, and Shelter for the Weak" Suggesting That She Was Considered to Be More Than Simply a Mere Mortal. Isis Was Known as "Hent" (Queen) in Every Nome, but She Was Also Known by a Bewildering Number of Names and Titles Throughout Ancient Egypt and Took on the Aspects of Many Other Goddesses. This Resulted in a Fairly Complex Relationship with the Other Gods and Goddesses.Note: Dear Buyer / This Statue Is Very Distinctive.
