The headless statue of the goddess Isis is considered one of the masterpieces of Ptolemaic sculpture, which combines Greek and Egyptian elements.

The statue is in a traditional Egyptian striding pose. She stands facing forward with her arms lowered along the sides of the body and her left foot forward.

Greek influence is evident in the contrast between the covered and bare areas of the chest and the shape of the folds of her transparent garment, which shows the beauty of the smooth body. The body shape is in the Greek style, based on the details in the abdomen, chest, and legs, which are all soft and rounded. The statue is smooth and well polished.

Dimensions:  Length 152.5 cm  Width 48 cm
