Oracle Card - Hathor

From Wikipedia:
Hathor (Egyptian for house of Horus) was originally a personification of the Milky Way, which was seen as the milk that flowed from the udders of a heavenly cow. Hathor was an ancient goddess, and was worshipped as a cow-deity from at least 2700 BC.

Another interpretation of the Milky Way was that it was the primal snake, Wadjet, the protector of Egypt who was closely associated with Hathor and other early deities among the various aspects of the great mother goddess.

These are so beautiful...would you mind sharing your secret for getting the wonderful textures on the faces? I've tried painting mine and they always look awful.
