Agree with you as well and I really like your photo. I've found that Aset doesn't like being called Isis and I will bow to the goddess wisdom.

Here's the link to a statue of Aset that has the throne symbol on her head with her holding Heru. Enjoy and thanks for answering my question.

Em Hotep,

I don't know if I'm placing this in the right spot but Beliefnet.org had a great article on not only Kemetics but Hellenic and Asatru. Just thought you might be interested. It's a little off in some places but over all a good article. Hope you like and let me know what you think about the quality of the work. Oh and they mention you guys as well.

Em Hotep,

I want to advertise a site called Egyptian Marketplace and I want to do it within the rules of the forum. Can anyone help me on this as I think that many will like this site especially for those that can't find Aset with the throne on her head. Thanks.

But to get back on topic it's hard to find a Aset that has the throne on her head. The horns that you see are really popular. I went back on the site and it was sold out. Sad, but that's what happens. To everyone, wish me luck on getting Aset with the throne on her head.

Egyptian Marketplace as one, and it's not freaking $80.00 and Mythlegendcollectables has one. They got a ton of cool Kemetic statues and I just love their service. I'm buying my Sekhmet (don't know her Kemetic name) from them. I went with Ebay when I was Hellenic and I got a statue from Greece. The buyer even included a post card that tourist buy when their in Greece. Cool and I still have it.

True but in my video I was clearing up a confusion that seems to be around and I'm not talking about what a group of people think at all. It was part of my Egyptian God series of video's that was meant to educate those that might not think that some of the gods and goddess that are from Egypt might have a older form. When I mentioned that Aset is older than the Greek Isis and that I don't view them as the same goddess then that's when she told me that they were.

It wasn't because Isis or Aset came to her that way she was putting her own personal opinions out there. She didn't come back on me and told me that I had insulted her. She's still a friend of mine.

I'm going to be looking for a Aset statue, though I know that she'll be listed as Isis. On Egyptian Marketplace she's listed as both Aset and Isis. So it will look like this Isis (Aset). I want to pick one up that doesn't have the horns but the symbol of the throne.

I have a question. I looked over the application and there's no room to write your answers. Can you put them on a separate piece of paper?

Is the "Egyptian Isis" (for lack of a better way to word it), viewed as a bastardization of Aset that happens to be a deity in and of herself, or is she viewed as an Egyptian deity that is outside of KO?


First of all, never in my wildest ravings, would I refer to any deity as a 'bastardization' of anything.  Period.  
Nope, no way, no how. SO very not happening.

Second, as others have mentioned before, I see Isis and Aset as two very different deities.  I am Kemetic Orthodox, so while I view Isis as Egyptian (granted a late period & Greco-Roman Egyptian, and even a goddess, I am neither a devotee nor a follower of Her.

Incidentally, I've the same opinion about Anubis & Yinepu.  I've seen a Roman era statue of Anubis dressed as a Roman...and it bothered me on a very fundamental level - and was NOT my god.


Or Heru (Horus) wearing Roman armor and riding a horse.

Em hotep!

Within Kemetic Orthodoxy Aset is Who we recognize. Isis is felt by many (including me, and I originally started out as an Isis worshiper) be quite different. Isis has many Greco-Roman traits that Aset does not share. Examples:
  • Isis is associated with the moon, while Aset is an Eye of Ra.
  • Isis is The Great Mother, Aset is a mother.
  • Etc.

It can be confusing because most people are only aware of Isis and use Her name interchangeably with Aset.

I believe (your mileage may vary, of course!) that Isis evolved from the late-period Aset, Who had already taken on the roles and titles of many feminine Names of Netjer.

Here are some links that discuss the differences between Them:
Aset Great of Heka, or Isis the Great Mother?
Aset Great of Heka  
The Roman Isis  

That's not to say that Isis isn't a powerful, meaningful goddess in Her own right...just that They're different ;)

senebty, Wedjbai


 


Hotep Nana,

Wedjbai sums it up well. Also Isis was a synthesis of Aset and Artemis. She was give attributes that quite simply did not belong to Her. I started out as an Isis worshipper and did so since beginning a Pagan path - first as a Wiccan and then finding my way here. And Isis is TOTALLY different to Aset. For me, They are two very different Goddesses. Isis is kind of a Mummy type Goddess, one who will give you a hug when you need it. Aset is more a HTFU kind of Goddess. She will tell you "Well you broke it, you fix it" She is very loving but very firm as well and is not averse to giving you a cosmic 2x4 when needed.

Senebty,


I didn't know that about Isis, thanks for telling me. I view Aset and Isis as two different goddess. Sorry about bringing this back up but I was looking for a topic about Aset and and found this one. What really gets me is that, while the gods with their Greek names are very beautiful, I view them as being totally different. There are just some goddess that you can't place in the 'moon' category and the Kemetic Goddess you can't, no matter how hard you try. I did a video about Aset and Isis being two different goddess and one girl said that she viewed them the same.

I told her "Sorry sweetheart but their not the same and never will be."

I deleted my account but I will be bringing the video back and I will do a link to it when I do the video.
