Country of Origin: EGYPT

The Goddess Isis is one of the oldest gods in the ancient Egyptian pantheon and was a central figure in the Osiris myth, in which she resurrected her slain husband, the divine king Osiris, and produced and protected his heir, Horus. She was believed to help the dead enter the afterlife, as she had helped Osiris, and was considered the divine mother of the Pharaoh, who was likened to Horus.

The wings, the headdress, the colors used, and the gestures depicted all have symbolic meanings. The wings of Isis symbolize either female hawks or kites, birds of prey whose cries "resemble the cries of distraught women". In this way, the wings represent both power and mourning. They also represent the resurrective power of Isis, who fans her wings to give breath back to her dead husband, Osiris. This is sometimes reinforced by the green color of the wings, because green symbolizes both life and resurrection in Egyptian art. The wings also symbolize safety because they are depicted as spread out, which is a protective gesture in Egyptian art. In this way, the wings of Isis reveal her magical ability (resurrection power), her mourning, and her protection of the dead.

Her headdress is the Egyptian hieroglyph for the throne, which is also the hieroglyph for her name. As a hieroglyph for the throne, it represents her magical powers, because the throne was believed to have magical powers. In addition, the throne represents "the primordial order of the beginning" because "in its forms lies the primordial hill" that "first emerged from the waters as habitable land. The throne is associated with the womb of Isis, and thus the headdress reinforces the belief that the king's power depends on her. The headdress is often depicted as blue, which in Egyptian art symbolizes the sky and the primeval flood (and thus life and rebirth). In this way, the headdress symbolizes Isis' ability to give life to a king through the power of the throne. The fact that Isis' skin is sometimes depicted as blue in these images reinforces the belief in her power over life and death and her importance to all people.
