Figure of Osiris

56.21.650
Cast bronze figure of Osiris. Although quite worn out, the features are visible. Osiris is shown in the tight wrap of his linen bandages with his hands holding the royal insignia of crook and flail. He wears an artificial curled beard and the plumed atef crown with a uraeus cobra on the front. A long wide tang at the feet would have been set into a wood or stone plinth. From excavations of the Egypt Exploration Society but no site recorded (given "from old stock" in 1925).
