Statue of an Official


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The statue represents the charioteer Psametik-mry-Re. He stands holding a large figure of the god Osiris, Lord of the Underworld. Such "Osirophorus" figures were popular during the Egyptian Late Period (7th-4th century BC). They were placed in temples to guarantee the participation of the person depicted in the rituals for the gods.
