Osiris Figure



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 an excavation of the Egypt Exploration Society, before 1925. Given to the East Anglia Egyptian Society in 1925 by the Egypt Exploration Society from 'old stock' in return for their subscription.
