Isis is often known as 'the most complete goddess', as she was associated with so many aspects of life. Reincarnation, magic, motherhood, protection, the moon and marriage are only a few things the Egyptians attributed to her.

She must be quite busy covering all those bases.  Still, I love this presentation of her.

She is possibly the most loyal and most cunning / wise goddess in all of Egyptian Mythology and I really admire her so much. The lengths that she went through to find and revive Osiris is incredible and also to protect a hours from Seth as well. Beautiful painting and I love her headress!

Gorgeous artwork!  I am a coordinator for The Sisterhood Alliance and would love to use this piece in an article we are publishing for our launch.  Please let me know if that would be ok!  Thank you and keep up the amazing work.

Too bad she was never an actual Egyptian Goddess despite what highly romanized Egyptian mythos will teach you.
OH MY GOD I'm freaking out with your art!! It's so beautiful, I'm mind blown!! Congratulations!!

This one reminds of one of the best teachers I've ever had in my entire life, a History teacher who spent like 3 classes telling us the story of Osiris and other Egipcians gods.

By my reckoning, Isis the the world's first known superheroine. That is one of the reasons I asked for this picture to be featured in the group about public domain heroes and other characters.

I am particularly fond of the skin tones in this piece. Most of the other portraits of Isis on DA are colored in a way that she looks questionably pale. This color looks about right to me.

Agreed. Still searching for other properly toned Isis pics, and I've yet to find one.

Thank you for lodging Isis with "The-Gods-Themselves". She will be most welcomed.
Blessed be,

for i am first and the last
i am the venerated and the despised
i am the prostitute and the saint
i am the wife and the virgin
i am the mother and the daughter
i am the arms of my mother
i am barren and my children are many
i am the married woman and the spinster
i am the woman who gives birth and she who never procreated
i am the consolation for the pain of birth
i am the wife and the husband
and it was my man who created me
i am the mother of my father
i am the sister of my husband
and he is my rejected son
always respect me
for i am the shameful and the magnificent one
