  Hathor
by Sharrie
 
 

The figure on the right depicted Hathor, wife of the sun-god Horus. She's goddess of joy & music & appears in the form of the cow.

Horus is the son of Isis & Osiris & is deemed to be the mythical first pharaoh of Egypt.

It's interesting to hear about the stories & myths of the Ancient Egyptian Gods. Some of the very famous are Amun, Isis, Osiris, Ptah & Re.
