This 1" X 1" X 3.25" cold cast resin Hathor statue is gold with black accents. She stands upon a black pedestal surrounded by hiroglyphics while holding her staff. Hathor was one of the forty-two state gods and goddesses of Egypt, and one of the most popular and powerful. She was goddess of many things: love, beauty, music, dancing, fertility, and pleasure.
She was the protector of women, though men also worshipped her. She had priests as well as priestesses in her temples. She was the daughter of Ra and was sometimes called “The Eye of Ra” (a title shared with Bast and Sekhmet, among others) in her role as the sun god’s defender. As the wife of Horus, she was associated with the mother of the pharaoh in her role as Horus’s nurse, and also with the wife of the pharaoh in her role as Horus’s consort.
