Isis was regarded as the mother goddess of Egypt and symbolical mother of the King. Isis was worshipped as the "Great of Magic" and called the "Eye of Ra." With her husband Osiris and their son Horus, they formed the main triad of Egypt. Here Isis has her wings extended in a pose of protection, often used to protect her son Horus or her husband Osiris.
Horus is the Falcon-God 'Lord of the Sky' and symbol of divine kingship. The Pharaoh was seen as a manifestation of the 'living Horus' on the throne of Egypt and each succeeding Pharaoh used the name of Horus as he first of his titles.
