ANCIENT EGYPTIAN BRONZE STATUE OF GOD OSIRIS GOD OF FERTILITY For Sale
ANCIENT EGYPTIAN BRONZE STATUE OF GOD OSIRIS GOD OF FERTILITY :
WE ARE PLEASED TO OFFER AN OUTSTANDINGAUTHENTIC ANCIENT BRONZE FIGURE OF GOD OSIRIS:
LATE PERIOD - circa 664 B.C. - 525 B.C.
This magnificent bronze votive sculpture represents Osiris, god of fertility, king of the dead, and ruler of eternity. Many centuries ago, it might have been found inside a temple, placed as an offering to the mighty deity. He is depicted wrapped as a mummy, holding a crook and flail. These two attributes act as scepters symbolic of his divine authority over the forces of nature. He wears a double-plumbed atef crown, features a uraeus cobra slithering down the front and a false braided beard with a curved tip. This type of beard is a symbol of divinity while the headdress associates the god with the ruling pharaohs. Very nice and fine details throughout face and body. Nicely displayed on a wooden base (included).
The legend of Osiris states that his brother Seth, overcome by jealousy, murdered him and tore his body into fourteen parts, scattering them across Egypt. Isis, the faithful wife of Osiris, traversed the land and gathered all the parts of his body. She then cast a spell that resurrected her deceased husband for one night, during which their child, Horus, was conceived. Thus, Osiris was the central figure of Egyptian religion, the god who had triumphed over death and therefore offered the hope of rebirth and resurrection to all men. This striking image of the god in his royal mummiform speaks of a universal mystery, the unanswered questions for which no living man has a sure answer.
