Mothers have been celebrated throughout the history, since the ancient times. Here in the United States we celebrate Mother's Day on the second sunday of May, and we hornor our mothers and thank them for their effort in giving us life and their continuous warm support and love.
The early form of Mother's Day is believed to be Greek's celebration of the mother goddess Rhea, who was the mother of many Greek deities. Ancient Romans adopted this Greek celebration and hornored their mother goddess, Cybele, with a festival that took place in spring. The closest form of Mother's Day as celebrated in the current United States is believed to be the English holiday called "Mothering Sunday", established in the 1600's AD. While the early Christians celebrated mothers by hornoring Virgin Mary, this English holiday expanded to hornor all mothers. After prayer was given to Virgin Mary, children presented their mothers with gifts, as we now do in various cultures.
As we are a gallery that mostly focus on ancient Egyptian artifacts, we consider Isis, the devoted wife of Osiris and mother of Horus, to be one of the most significant maternal deities in Egyptian mythology. She was a symbolic mother of the Egyptian King, and encapsulated the virtues of the archetypal Egyptian wife and mother. Another important deity related to motherhood was Hathor, the protective goddess, the wife of Horus, and was sometimes thought of as the mother of pharaoh. Her image could take the form of a cow, a woman with a cow's head, or a woman wearing the horns of a cow. As a motherly cow, she gave the king her divine milk, and protected him as a cow protects her calf.
