Country of Origin: EGYPT

Papyrus art of Queen Nefertari in the afterlife offering oils to Isis. Oils were highly valued in the mortal world and in the afterlife. Kyphi was made from frankincense, myrrh, mastic, pine resin, cinnamon, cardamom, saffron, juniper, mint, and other herbs and spices. The scent was described as completely uplifting, and those who could afford it were said to be envied by those who could not.

She is believed to have died sometime during regnal year 25 of Ramses' reign. She is shown here in a transparent dress - indicating that she is in the afterlife - offering oils to the goddess Isis. Isis is a very complex goddess who evolved into a goddess of joy, and so she was deeply loved by the general population and truly revered by women who aspired to embody her multifaceted role as wife, mother, and lover... holding the key of life or ankh in her right hand. She was said to greet the souls of the dead in Duat with her maternal nature and offer them refreshments of food and drink. She was also sometimes described as the mistress of the necropolis. It is in this role that we see Isis merge with the goddess Hathor.
