ANCIENT ISIS NURSING HORUS IN TERRACOTTA
Here you find a fragment of a terracotta handle in the form of Isis and Horus child. Isis is wearing the sun disk enclosed by a pair of cow's horns. The most common divine headdresses are cow horns and solar disks for the leading goddesses of the pantheon, such as Hathor and Isis, emphasizing their maternal role. Nice artifact which measures 3 inches and dates to the Late Period.

Provenance: Collected by Gustave Jéquier (1868-1946)
