Transcript of Isis and Egypt

Egypt Isis facts Isis's most important functions were those of motherhood, marital devotion, healing the sick, and the working of magical spells and charms.

Isis is the wife and sister of Osiris, sister of Set, and twin sister of Nephthys. She was the mother of Horus, and was the protective goddess of Horus's son Amset, protector of the liver and the deceased. Isis was responsible for protecting Horus from Set during his infancy; for helping Osiris to return to life; and for assisting her husband to rule in the land of the Dead.

Isis is usually depicted as a woman wearing the crown of Hathor, a solar disk held in between cow horns, and sometimes with wings as arms. In Isis's myth it says that Set killed Osiris for the throne. When Isis found out that Osiris was dead she went to look for the chest that Set had put Osiris's body in. She brought him back to life with a little magic. Which then they had their son Horus, Osiris had to go back to the dead and with the help of Isis he rules the underworld. Isis wanted Horus to take the place of his father on the throne. Set said the only way he could be on the throne is if he beat him in a chariot rac,e but Horus did not win. Horus said they would have a boat race and make their our own boats in which they did. Set made a stone one and Horus made a wood one and of course Sets boat sank. Horus gained the throne back in place of his father. Isis threw Set out of the kingdom for good. Conclusion Isis is known for her devotion to her son Horus, as depicted in the statue with him sitting on her lap. She eventually was able to gain the throne back for her son Horus and have Set thrown out of the kingdom. With determination, cunning, and a little magic, she was able to ensure that her son succeeded to the throne of his father. The story of Isis and Osiris, is a story of triumph over death, and the victory of good and right over brute force. Their story is one of the most cherished in the Egyptian mythology. Isis has also been pictured with a throne emblem on her head because her name means female of throne or Queen of the throne. Overall, Isis is an Egyptian goddess who
had to go through some difficult and challenging times in which she persevered and that's why I choose her because her life was very interesting. i hope you enjoyed my presentation about Isis!
