The goddess Isis is often depicted in ancient Egyptian art holding a basket above her head. The basket symbolizes the fertility and life-giving nature of the goddess. In Egyptian mythology, Isis was seen as the mother of all life and was associated with the idea of rebirth and renewal. By holding the basket above her head, she is offering her divine protection and nurturing to her followers. Additionally, the basket may also symbolize the goddess's role in the myth of Osiris, in which she searches for and collects the scattered pieces of her husband's body. In this sense, the basket represents the goddess's ability to restore life and order to the world.
