isis

the egyptian goddess isis was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artists and the downtrodden.
mini cairobile of (my favorite goddess) isis
all summer, beautiful images of ancient egypt  are popping up everywhere around los angeles. camels and triangle pyramids have taken over! while much of this imagery comes from the advertising of the cleopatra exhibition, i'm sure hollywood's remake with lindsay lohan plays a big part as well..
i hope to catch the cleo exhibit before it closes in december. so much i didn't know and
looks amazing!

I just got this beauty for my birthday!! I'm totally in love with this! The details are incredible. I love the cute smile on Isis' face and the cool cat with the septum piercing.

Slam dunk mobile! Best birthday present, hands down.

You're incredible Kim!
