Sculpture "Isis and Harpokrates"

The wife and the sister of the resurrection god Osiris, crowned with the cow horn and a sun-disc, breastfeeds their son Harpokrates. The cult of Isis crossed the borders of Ancient Egypt and reached the Roman soldiers and even the northern borders of the empire in Germany. In the Christian iconography, this group was a direct model for the pictures of Maria lactans with the little Jesus.
