Osiris Figure



Mummiform figure of the god Osiris. Gold outline to the eyes with pupils in black. Osiris is shown in the tight wrap of his linen bandages wearing a broad collar of beads, an artificial curled beard and the plumed atef crown with a uraeus on the front. Long wide tang at the feet that would have been set into a wood or stone plinth. Find number not recorded, but from one of the excavation seasons between 1966 and 1970.
