Isis

She of the throne



AKA Creation, Creatrix of the Nile Flood, Diadem of Life, Divine Mother, Female Principle in Nature, Fresh Tuft, Fructifier, Giver of Life, Goddess of Moisture, Green Goddess, Lady of Green Crops, Mistress of the Earth, She of Green Wings and Crescent Moon, Lotus-bearing   WikiIsis

 

Brief

One of the more popular gods of the Egyptian pantheon.  Her following spread throughout the greco-roman civilization until the clampdown on paganism.  That uncomfortable looking thing on top of her head is the symbol of the throne.  Check out this video Wings of Isis

She is still popular.  I found the shrine on the right on eBay.  It was bid up to $45.

The Egyptians had a slew of gods, makes one wonder when they had time to build the pyramids

Wonder Woman

Does anyone remember the Wonder Woman series popular in the ’70s with Linda  Carter as the star?  The series was based on Isis.  At well over 6′ she was perfect for the role. That’s all she did however, there wasn’t much demand for someone who dwarfed John Wayne.  Her golden lariat which would force someone to speak the truth is straight out of Isis.  And how about that invisible car.  (this is actually a crystal lexis, every time I tried to put a black background on Wonder Woman’s car it disappeared) There’s a lot of bling available for wonder woman.
