It is a human thing, to breastfeed our young. We also attribute this to our gods. Here, the goddess Isis is breastfeeding the young god, Horus. The King, Ptolemy II is bringing Isis a gift or offering (right) as Anouket serves the goddess (left). I think it would be great if all nursing mothers were made to feel like goddesses or queens!

There are some very beautiful breastfeeding artworks in the Promom Gallery. View them yourself. I like this Japanese one. It is obvious that this child is curious about the world around him. Moms who have nursed will recognize that nipples really do stretch like that for the curious child. Much of the art is in the public domain. It is available for moms to share.
