About this design
isis posters
One of the most popular goddesses in Egypt. Isis belongs to the Ennead of Heliopolis, and according to the Heliopolitan genealogy is a daughter of Seb and Nut, sister and wife of Osiris. Possibly she was originally the personification of the throne (her name is written with the hieroglyph for throne), and as such she was an important source of the pharaoh's power. In the Hellenistic time Isis was the protrectress of sailors. In the Osiris myths she searched for her husband's body, who was killed by her brother Seth. She retrieved and reassembled the body, and in this connection she took on the role of a goddess of the dead and of the funeral rights. Isis impregnated herself from the Osiris' body and gave birth to Horus in the swamps of Khemnis in the Nile Delta. Here she raised her son in secret and kept him far away from Seth. Horus later defeated Seth and became the first ruler of a united Egypt. Isis, as mother of Horus, was by extension regarded as the mother and protectress of the pharaoh's. She was worshipped as the divine mother-goddess, faithful consort of Osiris, and dedicated mother of Horus. Isis was depicted as a woman with the solar disk between the cow horns on her head (an analogy with the goddess Hathor) or crowned with a thrown, but also with the child Horus sitting on her lap. A vulture was sometimes seen incorporated in her crown. Also she was sometimes depicted as a kite above the mummified body of Osiris. Isis' popularity lasted far into the Roman era. She had her own priests and many temples were erected in her honor. On the island of Philae in the Nile delta her largest temple was situated (it was transferred to the island Agilkia in 1975-1980). The name Isis was understood by Plutarch as meaning 'Knowledge'.

"thanks"
By darkchrystal, 6/20/2004 about
i know it has to do something with a script someone is using to rate everything, for who else would be able to do such a thing day in and day out ... and just the posters/prints ... well it wont stop us doing everything we can to get it right again, there are a few tricks to do that also, just some extra work is all ... so really it is no use to downrate them LOL
"downrating"
By bragova, 6/17/2004 about
hi darkchrystal, you do very beautiful work. and the guy who does the downrating just has a faster computer than most of us. nothing will change until the zazzle people have time to reform their rating system.

By darkchrystal, 6/17/2004 about
