The name Isis means seat or throne. She was regarded as the symbolical mother of the King. In myth, she sought her dead husband and brother, Osiris, conceived her son Horus by him, buried and mourned him together with her sister Nephtys. Isis was regarded as the Eye of Ra and was worshiped as the Great of Magic who had protected her son Horus from snakes, predators and other dangers: thus she would protect mortal children also. The ancient Egyptians regarded the Goddess as the Eye of Ra. Here she carries the ankh and the papyrus scepter of Goddesses; the horns and sun disk of Hathor and the hieroglyph for the name Isis on top of the sun-disk. She wears a feather dress and a headdress composed of a vulture, showing that she was identified with Mut.
