Mummiform Osiris figurine. 50 cm

Osiris is the Egyptian god of the afterlife, the underworld, and rebirth.

He was classically depicted as a green-skinned deity with a pharaoh’s beard, partially mummy-wrapped at the legs, wearing a distinctive atef crown, and holding a symbolic crook and flail. He was one of the first to be associated with the mummy wrap, as his sister and wife, Isis, wrapped his body up after his brother (Set) killed him and cut him up into pieces.

Osiris was at times considered the eldest son of the god Geb and the sky goddess Nut, as well as being brother and husband of Isis, with Horus being considered his posthumously begotten son.
