Statue of Osiris on a Throne


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Osiris, considered to have been the first king of Egypt (and was representative of the human civilization and divine order), was murdered by his brother, Seth, (representative of the power of the world and uncivilized nature). Magically resurrected by Isis, Osiris is typically shown as a mummy with kingly attributes, including the "atef" crown-a variation of the "white crown" of Upper Egypt flanked by plumes-a long beard, the crook, and the flail, or whip.
