He wears the divine beard braided into a curl at the bottom and atef crown fronted by a uraeus serpent. In his hands he holds the customary implements, the crook and flail. He stands on a rectangular base with side suspension loop, a fragmentary loop behind the neck. Mounted on a marble stand with old description under the base. Height of figure 8 cms (3.15 ins). Ptolemaic Period: Circa 500 BC. A pleasing little figure; complete and intact and with good solid bronze, decent details and nice patination. Osiris was the Egyptian god of the afterlife and the underworld. In this role he was appropriately associated as the god of transition, resurrection, and regeneration. He was the brother-husband of the goddess Isis and the father of the god Horus. Egyptian Pharaohs would aspire to identify with Osiris in death, and were mummified to resemble the god which is why Osiris so often appears dressed as a Pharaoh in artistic depictions.
