Artwork Explained: Queen Aset

Artwork Explained: Queen Aset

This week we launched the brand new Egyptian inspired, Queen Aset apparel range. This artwork is a firm favourite among the team and we are exceptionally proud to introduce this collection to you, our Lunafide family!

The artist, Pyros did an exquisite job creating this artwork and put an immense amount of detail into the design. We have always been fascinated with ancient Egyptian art and history and we love to celebrate and remember a fascinating time in history through our Egyptian inspired art and designs. 

Aset was one of the most important and powerful goddesses of ancient Egypt. The meaning of Aset's name is “throne" a fitting name for the mother of all Gods in Egyptian mythology.

Aset was the daughter of the earth god Geb and of the sky goddess Nut, her divine siblings included Osiris, Seth, and Nephthys. Isis was married to Osiris,
 the god of fertility, agriculture, the afterlife, the dead, resurrection, life, and vegetation in Egyptian Mythology.

Aset was considered a good queen who supported Osiris and taught the women of Egypt how to weave, bake, and brew beer. Aset was most often represented as a beautiful woman wearing a sheath dress and either the hieroglyphic sign of the throne or a solar disk with outstretched wings. 

We hope you love this range as much as we do.
