The god depicted standing in mummiform with arms held at his chest, his fisted hands emerging from beneath his vestment holding a crook and flail, the details incised, wearing a braided divine beard and a plumed atef-crown fronted by a uraeus, the features of the face well detailed.

Osiris is one of the most important deities of ancient Egypt. The combination of his funerary and fertility aspects made Osiris the quintessential god of resurrection. His epithet Wennefer means 'eternally good', or 'eternally incorruptible'. One of the most celebrated goddesses in Egyptian mythology, Isis was the daughter of Seb, the earth god, and Nut, the goddess of the heavens. Isis was both sister and wife to Osiris and ruled at his side. When Osiris was murdered by Set, she made use of her wings to search for and retrieve his body which she then miraculously reassembled.
