Description
This seated bronze Osiris wears the "atef" crown of Upper Egypt and carries the crook and flail. These attributes in iconography attest to Osiris being the "lord of the west," and in the New Kingdom as judge of the dead along with Anubis at the "weighing of the heart." What is most significant about this bronze is its particularly large size, which is quite rare; along with the elegant modeling and commanding presence of the deity. - (PF.5349)
