Egyptian Faience Isis Nursing Horus
An ancient Egyptian light green faience amulet of Isis enthroned nursing the infant Harpokrates. The goddess sits on a high-backed throne and wears a long close fitting dress, and a solar disk crown with cows horns.
Saite Period, 26th Dynasty,
The image if Isis nursing Horus (Harpokrates, the infant Horus) is reminiscent of Mary and the baby Jesus.
