Osiris with a crown

The hope of another world was related to the vanishing Old Kingdom, in the form of god Osiris. The mythical ruler of the other world was "Master of Abydos", presiding over the court of the dead and, as vegetation god, he embodied also the rebirth. In the hands of the statue are placed his gold-adorned ruler insignia: Crosier and scut. On his head, he wears the feather Atef crown.
