Head of Isis or Queen as Isis


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Probably meant for temple use, such statues tended to blend the figure of the queen with that of the goddess of the temple. The head is carved in typically Egyptian style with idealized features. The eyes are depicted in a conventionalized manner, outlined with raised cosmetic lines. The corners of the mouth lift in a slight smile.
