An Isis Pendant with Protective Outspread Wings - Isis, the Queen of the Heaven and the Night, is the Egyptian Goddess of Magick and Mystery, female power and the Moon. Her name means 'Throne' or 'Seat'. In mythology she is the sister-wife of Osiris and the mother of Horus. When Osiris was dismembered by his brother Set, Isis searched for him and brought him back to life. She was worshiped throughout the world under a variety of other names, including: Demeter, Hera and Selene. Isis was the patron of marriage, the moon, divination, motherhood, agriculture, protection, reincarnation, initiation, fertility, magick, purification and domestic life. The cow, the buckle of Isis and the sistrum were sacred symbols to Isis. Isis is commonly portrayed with protective winged arms and, sometimes, the moon perched upon her head. Isis is a sacred part of the holy trinity along with Osiris (the father) and Horus (the divine son). Measuring just under 1-inch tall and just under 1-1/2-inches wide (1.38), this Pewter Isis Pendant with Antique Silver Plated Finish features raised detailing and comes on a silver plated necklace chain with lobster clasp closure.
