An instrument used essentially by women The sistrum was the favorite instrument of the temple singers, or "chantresses," as it was created a rhythm for the songs required by the liturgy. As this was the only role held by women in the cult (with a few exceptions), they were therefore the only ones to use the sistrum. In this case, two goddesses depicted as musicians on the hoop: "Isis the great, mother of the god," on the one hand, and "Mut the great, the Lady of Asheru [Karnak]" on the other. They are both portrayed facing the ram of Amun, playing for his "perfect face," as indicated in the hieroglyphs written in front of them.
