Isis is the Egyptian goddess of magic and motherhood, but putting it that way rather understates the case. Isis is simply one of the all-time great goddesses of world civilization. Worshiped by the Egyptians for thousands of years, she also became supremely important in the Hellenistic world. She was everything: mother, savior, redeemer; goddess of wisdom and healing; fount of fertility and rebirth; teacher of arts and skills. She is, in fact, the Egyptian version of the ancient Neolithic bird goddess, her huge outstretched wings sheltering those in her care.
Isis may have been the original Lady in Red; the Egyptians addressed her as “thou lady of the red apparel.” She was almost always depicted wearing the archaic Egyptian sheath dress, which was nothing more than a tube with straps.
