Isis (Egyptian Aset) is the Mother Goddess of the King, and the great Goddess of Magic. Her name in Egyptian, Aset, means throne, for it is on her lap that the young Pharaoh as Horus sits. She is often pictured with the crown of bulls-horns with the sun disk between them (like Hathor) which sometimes is accompanied by a vulture head covering, or other at times she is shown with headdress that has a small throne on top.
In mythology Isis is the wife and sister of Osiris, and their child is Horus. She is the daughter of Geb the God of Earth and Nuit (Nut) the Goddess of the Night Sky. By late antiquity Isis was transformed by many pagan cultures into the Great Mother Goddess who carried the title of Regina Natura, or Queen of Nature. Many images of her in this role were adopted by the Christians in their iconography of Mary
