"Olivia has surpassed herself – it appears that the work of the Goddess in the Temple was not yet complete for this season! MQ."

Isis in the Shrine of the Mirror of Osiris. First full-face portrait of Isis by OR!
Painted on glass, with a coloured background in a painted wooded shrine, Her Shrine is below that of the painted veil of Osiris over a circular mirror. Above is Nepthys painted on stone. She is always portrayed above the head of Osiris, Isis at his feet.

"When I returned the next day (10.06.2011) Olivia had just completed a full length portrait of Hathor that very morning, and made some other additions as she explains below….. MQ."


Hathor

Message from Olivia
(10.06.2011)

"After painting Isis, it came to me that there was no clear expression to help others understand the very meaning of the Goddess. So I found myself painting Hathor and adding the flowers and fruits of the Earth to each figure, providing food, beauty and abundance to all.

I realise now that Isis is revealing Herself, through the changing faces of Her Temple, withdrawing Her Veil, not all at once, but Shrine by Shrine according to the Zodiac periods.”


Shrine of Anthrosphinx
© M.Q.

Shrine of The Anthrosphinx of Sekhmet, Bast, Ra.
This was comprised of the Zodiac Houses of Leo to Virgo. The climax was the Egyptian Harvest with the inundation of the Nile. So Hathor Goddess of Love & Abundance is shown giving a cornucopia of food to the hungry, Humans, a Lion and a Tiger. Fruit is shown given by the Deities, Sekhmet, Bast & Ra.
