Goddess: Bird Lady of Egypt

Represents resurrection, freedom, peace, love, eternity.

Numerous female figurines from the Paleolithic period show bird faces and bird characteristics. This remains so after the Ice-period.

At the period of the first farmers Venuses are found mostly everywhere in Egypt and in Ancient Europe with a tapering bird face and uplifting arms. The legs usually are not articulated.

This beautiful terracotta painted figure, officially called Bird Lady, was found in a Predynastic tomb from Neolithic Egypt, 3500-3400 BCE in El Ma’mariya from upper Egypt.

Nag` El Ma`mariya is a place with a very small population in the state/region of Aswān, Egypt which is located in the continent/region of Africa. The closest major cities are Luxor and Aswan.

She is a rare undamaged example and can be viewed in the Brooklyn museum. She is one of the oldest statuettes ever excavated in Egypt.

With her uplifting arms the Bird Lady is an expression of graceful femininity.

Similar female figures painted on Predynastic vessels appear to be Goddesses, because they are always larger than the male “priests” shown with them.   Pictures of more Bird Ladies:

My pendant of the Bird Lady is two dimensional and she is a modern wearable pure silver pendant.

Isis will later manifest herself as a bird or as a winged lady. In the chapel on the roof of the Hathor temple at Dendera (Upper Egypt), you will see her as a bird hovering over the inviting phallus of the dead Osiris.

She fertilizes herself from him, becomes pregnant and after nine months gives birth to her son Horus. In him Osiris will be reborn.

 

 

One divine energy: the Goddess and the God, together as one…
