Who is this Goddess?
« on: May 13, 2011, 03:34:46 am »
I spotted a lovely looking item in an ebay sale but was wondering who it represented.
Could it be Nut?

Thanks!

Wow! That's definitely a very Nut-like figure. Whether it actually is Her or not, you could certainly use it to represent Her--it's very rare to see anything so appropriate. Nice find!

Yeah, definitely looks like Her, but Her hair is quite Het-Hert-y too....

That is totally Nut (from Djedhor's sarcophagus, currently in the Louvre--click!). This is a fairly common Ptolemaic representation AFAIK. Hethert and Nut share many connections and such, including hairdressers, apparently. ;)
Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later that night you were lying looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself Why is it that the landscape is moving but the boat is still?

Hee hee! I thought it was a sarcophagus image and thus probably Her, but the hairstyle threw me off too. ^_^

Someone was teasing me about my board name (it's related to the car collection) and "Hairdresser_of_Aset" came to mind. Coming up with hairstyles that compliment the throne (or the horns, or even fish that the other Goddesses have as headgear) must be quite the challenge.

Actually, if you look at that curlicue hairstyle framing the roundish face and then you look at the horns-and-disk headdress. . . It's not exactly an accident of fashion IMO. ;)
