Egyptian Goddess Hathor: Family and Symbols


By Morningbird

Hathor is the ancient Egyptian Goddess of happiness and protectress of the hearth. She is the wife of Horus and is sometimes considered to be the mother of the Pharoah. Her name means “house of Horus”.

She is imaged as a woman with cow ears and a headdress of stylized horns and a red sun disk.
