|Polymer Clay and Gemstone Wand - "Eset"
"Eset" is another form of the name "Isis" - Egyptian Mother Goddess
(Aset, Eset, Aat, Menkhet, Hert, Ament, Menhet) - translated "Throne"
She ruled over all matters concerning mothering, life, and sorcery. As the personification of the
throne, she was an important source of the Pharaoh's power. She was depicted in human form,
crowned either by a throne or by cow horns enclosing a sun disk, occasionally a vulture was
incorporated in her crown. She is also depicted as a kite above the mummified body of Osiris.
She was divinely represented by the Ankh.
Eset (Isis) is one of the four great protector goddesses, which included Bast, Nephyths, and
Hathor. She guarded coffins and the Canopic jars. In the origin myth of Ra and the world, Isis
found out Ra's name by enchanting a poisonous snake to bite him. When Ra was close to dying,
Isis told him that she could only heal him if she knew Ra's true name. By knowing Ra's name,
she then had power equal to him and was then given all of her magical power and was forever
known as the Divine Sorceress.
I wanted to create a wand incorporating Eset/Isis' symbols, colors, and magic!
I have included several of the gemstones that the Ancient Egyptians favored, as well as their
ancient symbols, and some of the symbols that directly represented Eset/Isis.
Below are the meanings of the symbols and gemstones:
The Scarab Beetle symbolized hope and the restoration of life to the ancient Egyptians. The
ancient Egyptians saw how these beetles (scarabs) lived and emerged from dry ground and used
this as a metaphor for the entombing and resurrection of their mummies. In this way the beetle
became the Egyptian symbol for rebirth, the ability to be reborn.
The Ankh was the Symbol of eternal life. The gods are often seen holding an ankh to someone's
lips this is considered to be an offering of "The Breath of Life". The breath you will need in the
afterlife. Eset/Isis was divinely represented with this symbol and in many of the ancient pictures
or carvings she is depicted holding this symbol.
Wings of Isis - Eset/Isis is a Bird Goddess. Her most important sacred animal is a bird of prey.
The Goddess often takes the form of Her sacred raptor; the kestrel (the most common falcon in
Egypt), or "kite".
