Panel with Painted Image of Isis

Description

Her elaborate headdress and the characteristic “Isis knot” in her mantle identify the goddess Isis. The headdress combines floral elements with a central uraeus, all covered by a transparent veil. The goddess carries a staff on one shoulder and a wreath of pink flowers, like those seen on portraits of her worshippers, draped over the other.
