Description

What do Cleopatra, the Roman emperor Hadrian, the philosopher Plutarch, the Black Virgin of Notre-Dame du Puy, Cagliostro, Robespierre, Bonaparte, Goethe, Novalis, Nerval and even Nietzsche have in common? An Egyptian goddess in many forms: Isis. Since the ancestral goddess Aset (her Egyptian name which the Greeks transcribed as Isis), this historic fresco illustrates the longevity of a myth which has haunted not only the imagination of ancient times, from the banks of the Nile through to the confines of the Roman Empire, but also that of the modern world. We can thus identify the preferred goddess of the Pharaohs in the barely concealed characteristics of Roman Virgins, then in the Freemasonry and festivals of the Revolution, on the bow of the ship on the Paris coat of arms, and in the multiple depictions of “veiled Isis” throughout Romanticism. With the aid of concrete historical, archaeological and literary references, this work shows us just exactly how much we continue to be influenced by this idealistic figure of a Life-saving lady, born five thousand years ago.
