This handmade and hand painted votive statue is symbolically representative of the Goddess Isis and features her later period headdress of the horns and solar disc. The solar disc sitting in the horns in this votive statue is beautifully represented with a 40mm rough polished Amazonite disc. This then rests in a crescent shaped cradle which is elegantly supported by double "Isis Thrones" emanating from a standard rectangular base.

This icon represents the best known visual incarnation of the Isis' headdress, the horns of a cow cradling a solar disk.

The horns and base are hand-fashioned out of of premium polymer clay and painted with acrylic, Iron oxide, micaceous black and gold pigment paints.

This icon measures 5 inches high by 5 1/4 inches wide and it is 1 1/2 inches in depth

The Amozonite in this piece is among the lightest and palest in blue I have ever worked with. It is striking and more layered in color than the images can show. The first and fifth images show the truest blue representation of the color.

**We can customize this piece with a number of stone discs and sizes. Inquire about current availability of stones and colors and the time to turn around a custom order!

Originally the headdress was that of the goddess Hathor, but later depictions of Isis linked the two together in myth and imagery. Images of this headdress on Isis are often accompanied by a vulture whereas Hathor's version sometimes includes a cobra. The horns, though associated with a cow are thought to have been representative of the visible ring around a solar eclipse and thus another symbol of her as a celestial goddess. Isis is also often depicted wearing red.

Isis is the Goddess of motherhood, magic and fertility. She was the console of slaves, sinners, artisans, the downtrodden, as well as listening to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers.

Frequently asked questions about shadowofthesphinx

My pieces are created using polymer clay and metallic pigments with a reactive patina. Depending on the individual design, they can be fragile. Amulets should be worn with care. If the amulet gets wet or lays against your skin, the patina will likely turn darker in coloring as it reacts to oils or water. Over time, the patina will darken slightly with handling or exposure to dampness or moisture. Smoke from smudging or a blessing ritual will not harm them.

The knotted cords on the amulets are double slip knots to allow for sizing by slinging the knots along the cord. Should they loosen or come undone they are easily tied again. Convo me if you need instructions on doing so! :)
I accept custom requests for any type of altar piece or statue/icon/amulet. I do not take on every request. Sometimes I am unable to create the requested piece due to any number of reasons pertaining to my own ability to sculpt a certain figure or form. Therefore, accepting a commission or order does not guarantee I will be able to create it. This is why I do not take downpayments on these requests. IF I can create your piece, and you are totally happy with it, then I create the listing for payment at that time. I have a steady stream of work that is deadline based so custom pieces, while I will always try to complete them in the stated time frame, that time frame is subject to delays. :)
I make most of my statues in a variety of sizes ranging from mini 2" / 5cm up to 10" / 25cm in height. Pricing is not as easy to scale. Since it takes the same amount of time to sculpt a 9 inch figure as it does a 6 inch figure, there is only a small difference in the prices. When we get under 5 inches, ratio becomes harder to impart. As statues get larger, they require more clay and detailing time which adds to the expense. And, of course, shipping costs and customs fees on your end may increase along with that as well.
All my pieces are packaged with every consideration to safe travels. That's said, breakage does occur on statues rarely but every now and then. I guarantee all shipping and will gladly repair or replace broken items.

OUTSDE THE US -please be aware of your country/regions import tariffs and taxes. There is a customs/import charge for merchandise and sometimes a charge for handling/delivery of a package to you in many countries.
