CaptionSister-consort of Osiris god of the dead is represented seated with her son placed at a right angle to her on her lap. She wears a tight-fitting dress and a headdress. Horus is given the attributes of a child being shown naked The living king being wears a uraeus cobra a symbol of kingship on his forehead. Isis was revered as an emblem of motherhood and protector of young children. ________________ The kernel of the Isis archetype is the consciousness of being the seat of life; a woman's awareness of her own function of beginner nurturer and medium for life to accomplish its means - Manuello Dunn Mascetti The Song of Eve ___________________ The child is supported by his mother's left arm while her right hand offers her breast for suckling. Isis was revered as an emblem of motherhood and protector of young children. Possibly due to the shift of political power to the Delta where in myth Isis raised Horus in secret the cult of Isis and the child Horus strengthened from the Third Intermediate period onward and during the Greco-Roman period spread widely through the ancient world.
