Egyptian Goddess Art

Egyptian Goddess Art Drawings

During ancient times, the world was full of mystery as people relied on ritual and storytelling as their guide to life. Concepts such as night and day, the seasons, or life and death were considered to be the work of supernatural powers. The worship of deities helped to humanise these processes and help people understand the meaning behind them. Egyptian Goddess art details the lives of pivotal women in Ancient Egyptian culture, offering us a glimpse into a long-lost world shrouded in mystery and glamour.

It was common for Egyptian Gods and Goddesses to represent one single aspect of the world: Ra was the God of the sun, Isis was the Goddess of life and magic and Nut was the Goddess of the sky. What is curious about the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt is that not all of them represented good qualities with many of them possessing malevolent traits that shone a light on the dark side of the human psyche. 

How are the Goddesses presented in Egyptian Goddess art? 

Since Egyptian Goddesses represented the unbreakable bond shared between humans and nature, very often they were represented as being half human, half beast. However, depending on the status of the deity, the reverse was true, such is the way for the Sphinx whose status as a king is marked with a human head and a lion’s body. Most commonly they possessed a human body and an animal head. It was believed that the deity could morph into one or the other depending on their mood. If the Goddess was angry or upset, the wilder animal form, such as a lion, will present itself. If she was happy, a gentler version of the animal, such as the cat, will appear. Dogs, falcons, rams and snakes are other species of animals commonly used to depict deities in Egyptian Goddess art.

Important figures in Egyptian Goddess drawing

One of the most important figures in Egyptian Goddess art is the Goddess Serket, the Mother Goddess. She was widely adored in Lower Egypt and is most commonly depicted as a beautiful golden woman with a scorpion on her head. She represents life, fertility and it was believed that she held the power to cure venomous bites and stings, especially those from scorpions. Her influence was so powerful that even great pharaohs like Tutankhamun worshipped her – a fact known thanks to the discovery of a golden statue of the Goddess in the pharaoh’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings.
