For thousands of years, Isis was the nurturing mother goddess of the Egyptians. The wife of Osiris and the mother of Horus, her cult focused on the fertility of the land and the promise of eternal life. With the coming of the Ptolemaic Greeks and later the Romans, the worship of Isis was incorporated with that of classical mother goddesses and spread throughout the ancient world. A temple of Isis was discovered among the ruins of Pompeii. Someone seeking the favor of the goddess offered this charming votive image centuries ago. In an elegant gold pendant, it evokes the mystery and the magic of the eternally feminine. - (FJ.3607)
