Regeneration and the Giver of Life.
This image of the Nile Goddess appeared around 4000 b.c. She has a bird like face and wing like arms. She symbolizes regeneration, as she is a blend of bird, woman and deity. Her well rounded lower half represents the cosmic or primal egg. The cosmic egg was said to have been the basis of all cosmic matter from which the universe is formed.
These images were discovered in graves in Mohamerian, near Edfu.
