Isis Pendant

As mother of Horus, Isis was the goddess of motherhood, but she also was the patron of nature and magic. Her magical skills restored the body of her brother and husband Osiris to life after she gathered the body parts that had been strewn all over the earth by Set.
After the conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great and the greek administration of the Ptolemaic Period, the cult of isis became very popular. Throughout the Graeco-Roman world, Isis became one of the most significant of the mystery religions, and many classical writers refer to her temples, cults, and rites. Shrines and temples were found in Africa, Asia and Europe, even in Britain and Germany. A well preserved temple can be visited in Pompei, and the foundation of another one is now a museum in Mainz, Germany (Mogontiacum). The worship carried on until the christian church started the suppression of paganism. At the island of Philae, the last temple of Isis was closed in the 6th century.

Our pendant shows a kneeling Isis with a throne as headdress, spreading her life-giving wings. Above the figure is the cartouche (seal) of pharao Sethos I., father of Ramses II the Great. The hieroglyphes read ´Men-Maat-Re´, ´continual is the world order of Ra´.

Pendant of high quality 925 silver, with leather thong. Size 40x27 mm.
