The Goddesses Isis and Nephthys Praising Djed

The Goddesses Isis and Nephthys Praising Djed

Reproduction of a vignette from a 19th Dynasty copy of the Book of the Dead.
The motif symbolises rebirth and the sunrise and shows the sun disc of the god Ra raised into the sky by an ankh-sign (signifying life) and a djed-pillar (signifying stability and the god Osiris). It is being adored by the sister goddesses Isis and Nephthys, and baboons.
