Isis represents the power of love to overcome death. She brought her husband and brother, Osiris, back to life and saved her son Horus from certain death. She is portrayed wearing the hieroglyph for "throne" on her head; from the New Kingdom onward, she sometimes wore a solar disc between cow horns. She is also often depicted mourning the death of her husband and nursing their son.
