Originating in early dynastic eras (c. 3rd millennium BCE), the cow goddess Hathor is an Egyptian goddess of the sky, music, femininity, fertility, motherhood, and love, with her many aspects making her crucial to the religious worship of Egypt. The name Hathor means “estate of Horus,” as she was consort to the falcon-headed God of the sky, Horus, and, like Isis, she was seen as his mother as well. Portrayed as either a woman, a cow-headed woman, or a cow, Hathor was crowned with the horned sun disk. As time wore on, the traits of Hathor, such as her crown, were also attributed to Isis. As a goddess of music and dance, Hathor was represented by the symbol of the sistrum, a musical percussion instrument similar to a rattle. Hathor also arouses the fullness of the Nile so needed for the fertility of Egypt.
