The sistrum was a musical rattle associated with the cult of Isis. This exquisite fragment would have fit above the handle and connected to the looped support for the horizontal clapper bars. The gentle face of the nurturing goddess Hathor--identified by her cow's ears--smiles out at us serenely. If we close our eyes, we can perhaps hear the rhythmic beat of a thousand such instruments, filling the cool air of some long ago evening. - (FZ.025)
