The Goddess Auset aka Isis
Statute of Isis Suckling Horus; Bronze
Karnak Late Period (664-332 B.C.)
Egyptian Museum, Cairo

Despite the minute scale of this figure of Isis with the Horus child on her lap, the workmanship is rich in detail. The sides of the throne display woven patterns and the traditional motif of the unification of the Two Lands. The goddess wears anklets and armbands in addition to a close-fitting dress and uraeus diadem. The small Horus figure wears the Double Crown. But even here Kushite details can be recognized.

Auset was the daughter of Nut and Geb. Twin sister of NebHet,wife and sister of (Ausar aka Osiris). The ideal wife and mother. Generally a goddess of the home and person rather than of the temple and the priest. Here divine mother, Auset, is sitting on a lion throne. Her tripartite wig is covered with a vulture headdress, surmounted by the corba crown, with cows horns and solar disc. She is offering her breast to her son Heru, seated on her lap. He, in turn, is shown with a side lock and nude, to indicate that he is a child.

According to Egyptian mythology, Ausar was murdered by his brother Set then brought back to life by the love of his sister and wife, Auset. This myth describes the forces of destruction that initiated the process of mummification. The love of Auset is symbolic of regeneration and the promise of eternal life. The cycle of destruction, death and rebirth was repeated each year in the annual flood of the Nile, the river that provided the essential ingredients needed to sustain life, giving birth to one of the first civilizations.
