Shake That Sistrum

shake-that-sistrum

An ancient Egyptian priestess shakes her sistrum, an Egyptian form of rattling instrument (the plural is sistra). The sistrum was also known to the Mesopotamians and Minoans and is still employed by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to this day. In Egypt, it was sacred to the goddesses Bastet and Hetheru (Hathor).
