I was just remarking to Adam the other day how important it is to me to have modern images of Isis—along with the more ancient Egyptian ones. (He knows this, of course. He’s gifted me with several of my modern Isises.) I wanted to share one of my favorites…well actually, this is my absolute favorite.
She is the Egyptian Rocket Goddess by Audrey Flack.
Please see more of Ms. Flack’s beautiful Goddess/Heroine sculptures at AudreyFlack.com. And DO NOT MISS the public commissions section.
To me, the Rocket Goddess is decidedly Isis, in Her Magician form, I think. The blast-off power of the rockets is the rocket ride of magic; and the snake draped about Her shows us Her Weret Hekau (Great of Magic) serpent form. Goddess! Is She not fabulous? Apparently, this sculpture is in a private collection in Canada somewhere. So I must content myself with a photo….
