Isis with Horus

Ptolemaic Period

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 134

Isis with her son Horus seated on her lap is sculpted here in a marble with a distinctive bluish cast. It is notable that dense whitish stones are popular choices for statuettes of the goddess and her son. The statuette fits into a separate ancient base of limestone.
