This is a lovely new design of Hathor with a Lapis Lazuli Sun Disc between her two horns.
The cult of the goddess Hathor was widespread and went far back to pre-dynastic times. Originally she was worshipped as the heavenly cow, the original mother and heavenly food-giver. As an embodiment of complete femininity, the original goddess later received the form of a woman to whom only the horns of the cow and the ears of the cow were assigned. Dendera was originally the main site of the cult of Hathor where she was worshipped as a 'female soul with two faces'. She was considered to be the goddess of the dead in Thebes - where the last wish of a dying person included being protected from the powers of darkness as a follower of Hathor.
