Description

An important and popular Goddess of Ancient Egypt, Hathor is depicted here in the traditional manner as a robed woman, wearing a mantle of cow horns with the Sun disk between them. She was revered as the goddess who welcomed the dead to the afterlife, and was worshipped often as the divine representation of music, beauty, love and motherhood, as well as the joy that these things bring into our lives. Among the Greeks, who often interpreted the Egyptian Gods and Goddesses within their own pantheon, she was often associated with Aphrodite, while the Romans in turn represented her as Venus. As in the images of painted and carved into monuments, walls, and tombs, she is shown here in a golden town, with her headdress and jewelry accented in reds and green, with the brilliant red of the sun disk prominent upon her head, while she carries the ankh and the crook in her hands. Standing 11 3/4" tall, she rests upon a 2 1/4" base.
