Ancient Egyptian Goddess Hathor is a beautiful woman depicted with the body and horns of a cow. Hathor is called the ‘Lady of Heaven’ she is sometimes depicted as a cow, sometimes as a beautiful woman wearing a crown of cow's horns on either side of a solar disk. She rules joy, love, motherhood, sensuality and fertility. Sometimes watches over women giving birth. Mother and wife of Ra. Hathor is also a goddess of death and offers comfort to the newly dead as they pass into the after-world.
