Hi Everyone ;o) It's nice and sunny today, although, we have been having some light snow flurries and tomorrow, we are suppose to get even more snow. Well, March came in like a lamb, so I guess it's going out like a lion ;o)
I have made some "extra" Goddesses, that won't be included in the challenge. As much as I love doing my Native themed art, I love doing my Egyptian themed art too ;o)
The Goddess Isis is the Great Goddess of Egyptian religion, a powerful sorceress and protectress, who represents the power by which the Pharoahs ruled.
In heiroglyhs, Her name in corporates a throne-symbol, and this attribute was often depicted on Her headdress. She is the daughter of the Earth-God Geb and the Sky-Goddess Nut and sister to Osiris.
She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the matron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans and the downtrodden and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers.
Hathor is Goddess of women, love, and joy, music, dance, celebration and beauty. She protects women and is present whenever they beautify themselves. She blesses women with fertility. The Greeks identify Her with their Aphrodite.
Hathor's name literally means "House of Horus". Cows as emblems of nourishment are sacred to Her. She usually is shown with either a cow's head on a woman's body, or cow ears and long horns on Her head that enfold the sun disk.
Have a great weekend everyone ;o) Hugs ;o)
