A Portrait of Isis by Feather-Collector A Portrait of Isis by Feather-Collector
So this is one of the many projects that has been keeping me busy this week... A personalized portrait of the Egyptian goddess Isis, done as a birthday present for a good friend of mine that I took my Illustration degree with.

There are a bunch of symbols from different Isis myths here... and some of them are from Greek reinterpretations. The hint of Hathor in the use of a cow mask is a reference to the blending that happened between the two goddesses at times, and in some interpretations.

Well researched and wonderful. Reminiscent of Aubrey Beardsley and Michael Parkes.
