Unencumbered by reservations, infinite and measureless, her devotion to Isis - friend of slaves, sinners, artisans and the downtrodden - is unchanging. Worshipped as the ideal mother and wife, Isis is also known as "she of the throne": the Pharaoh himself is depicted as her child and sits on a throne she provides. And what would be the fate of Egypt if Isis abandoned it? As her devoted handmaiden, she knows it is only the tears of Isis’s sorrow for the dead Osiris each year that makes the Nile flood, bringing life and nourishment to all.
