Photographer's Note

A detail from within a wooden coffin of the winged goddess Isis, a goddess in Egyptian mythology. She was the sister and wife of Osiris. Isis and Osiris had a son named Horus. As goddess of life and magic, Isis protected women and children, and healed the sick. The museum has moved out to Giza from central Cairo since I was there, and is well worth the admission fee. Allow an entire day. There is a LOT to see.
