Ancient Egyptian art found in tombs or on burial artifacts emphasizes the preparations for and journey to the afterlife. In this scene from the tomb of Queen Nefertari, wife of Ramesses II, the goddess Maat kneels respectfully before the goddess Isis. Traditional symbols, headdresses and clothing help identify the various deity in Egyptian art. The background is decorated with hieroglyphics documenting passages from the Book of the Dead as an aid to Nefertari on her transition from this life to the next. The oval hieroglyph is known as a “cartouche”, a sort of signature of the tomb occupant, in this case, Queen Nefertari.
Isis, goddess of motherhood and magic, rebirth, reincarnation, protector of the dead, sits on her throne before a kneeling Maat, goddess of truth, justice, order, law, and morality.
