This small magical figure represents Isis-Hedjedet (Isis-scorpion). The goddess kneels with a Hathor emblem in front of her. Four rearing cobras, two on each side, separate the emblem from the goddess's knees. On her lap is a mummified figure of the god Osiris and on her head is a scorpion. On the back of the statuette is a head of the god Bes with a winged scarab beneath.
