The name `Osiris' is the Latinized form of the Egyptian Usir which is interpreted as 'powerful' or 'mighty'. He is the first-born of the gods Geb (earth) and Nut (sky) shortly after the creation of the world, was murdered by his younger brother Set, and brought back to life by his sister-wife Isis. This myth, and the gods involved, became central to Egypts culture and his religious life.Osiris was also known as The Lord of Love, King of the Living, and Eternal Lord. After Isis, Osiris was the most popular and enduring of all the Egyptian gods. His worship spanned thousands of years from shortly before the early dynasty Period (c. 3150-2613 BCE) to the ptolemaic dynasty (323-30 BCE), the last dynasty to rule Egypt before the coming of Rome. It is also possible that Osiris was worshipped in some form in the Predynastic Period of Egypt (c. 6000-3150 BCE) and probable that he originated at that time **** You get the exact item seen here in all the photosThere was only a family member that was at the estate sale that said his Brother Traveled to Egypt in the 1920's and had many of these he bought in collections while he was there.

Hieroglyphs caricatures tell a story as to who, what and where or more information. Most commonly made of Clay type Pottery some having a coating called faience, Faience is a ground up quartz into a fine powder, then made into a paint, as the item is placed into the very hot firs, turned into many colors of greens, to blue, some were not glazed at all and are just Clay/Pottery The were also inscribed with a spell from the Book of the Dead and placed in the tomb. The deceased were called upon to do labor. A magical spell animated the shawabti. The amount of shawabti placed into the tomb increased over the years, until there was a figurine provided for every day of the year, to insure an eternity of those within the Tumb. There are many types of Shabtis in museums all over the world, some represent the king and the other represents king's servants. >>> I will Combine S&H for $3.00 extra per won auction on the Egypt items. *** Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. ** Private Collection Estate itemsProvenance:Egypt, Material:Pottery/Stone?, California Prop 65 Warning:NONE
