Cool Bookends. Egyptian Queen Isis. Pair. Stone Composite.
With the image of Isis (aka Aset) – a major goddess in ancient Egyptian religion whose worship spread throughout the Greco-Roman world – these two bookends are cast in a stone composite material and stained to resemble a light green and gold patina.
Isis – known as the “great mother Isis” (translated to “Queen of the Throne”) – was the goddess of healing and magic and husband to Osiris, ruler of the underworld. Now you know.
Acquired from a bibliophile in Ohio USA who kept some very nice Egyptian Dynasty books between them.
