The name Isis is identical with the name for 'throne'. Originally she was considered to be the symbolic mother of all kings and the embodiment of the occupant of the throne. She was the sister and wife of Osiris and gave birth to their son Horus. She protected him and also human children from predators and other dangers. Isis was also considered to be full of magic since she blew new life breath into the dead Osiris.
The symbol of the sun, upon which she is kneeling, in ancient times was the representation of the sky with the two outspread wings. With the addition of the sun disc in the Fifth Dynasty the sign became a sun symbol. The winged sun involves a symbol of royal protection recognisable from the two uraeus snakes coiled around the sun disc. The Uraeus, or cobra, is yet abother form of Isis as when Horus was born Isis took him into the Nile Delta and changed her form into a cobra in order ro protect him from Set who, if he had found him, would surely murdered him.
