Egyptian Hand-Painted Papyrus Artwork:
Queen Nefertari on Night Boat


This scene depicts Queen Nefertari travelling on a night boat made of papyrus, progressing from the netherworld to the Hall of Judgment, as a way to achieve eternal life.  The Queen is being assisted on her journey by several goddesses.  On the far right is the goddess Nephthys, the “Friend of the Dead.” She is depicted as a woman with the hieroglyphic symbols of her name (a basket and a house, stacked on top of each other) situated atop her head.  Nephthys is the youngest daughter of Nut, sister of Isis and Osiris, and the sister-consort of Seth.

Next to Nephthys is her sister, Isis.  She is portrayed as a woman wearing a headdress shaped like a throne.  She is holding the Ankh, the “Key of Life.” Isis is the goddess of motherhood, magic and fertility, as well as the goddess of rebirth.

Queen Nefertari is seen seated in her throne with her feet on a pillow.  She is holding a sistrum (sacred rattle) in her hand.  Facing the Queen is the goddess Ma’at, shown with an ostrich feather in her hair.  Ma’at is the goddess of truth and justice.  Standing to the left of Ma’at is the goddess Hathor.  She is depicted as a cow goddess with head horns in which is set a sun disk with Uraeus (cobra).  She is the goddess of love, beauty, and  motherhood, and in another role, she is often depicted as “Mistress of the West” welcoming the dead into the next life.  The figure on the far left is the boatman.

The Winged Solar Disk at the top is a symbol of protection.  The solar disk represents Ra, the sun god, who recreated the world every day.  The falcon wings, and the two ankhs with falcons, represent the god Horus, the god of the sky.
