Relief of Goddess Isis

Mural depicts the goddess Isis,

wears a headress of cow horns and a sun disk. Isis is one of the main characters of the Osiris myth, in which she resurrects her slain husband, the divine king Osiris, and produces and protects his heir, Horus. She was believed to help the dead enter the afterlife as she had helped Osiris, and she was considered the divine mother of the pharaoh, who was likened to Horus.

From the Tomb of Horemheb (KV57). New Kingdom, late 18th Dynasty, ca. 1319-1292 BC. Valley of the Kings, West Thebes.
