Abstract
In the image system of ancient Egypt, Hathor is one of the very few gods that shown up on the front, she is also powerful and plentiful moral. Thus it is great significance to research on the facade image of the Goddess Hathor. This paper aims at starting with a few different situations that appeared on the front of the Hathor, to analyze the two sides of her character and strong power to elaborate her position of the world view in ancient Egypt and communication between the front image and viewer, therefore, a more reasonable explanation is given by this paper for the appearance of the front image of Hathor.
