Images of Osiris

Osiris is the Ancient Osirian god of death, the afterlife and fertility. He dies each year with the harvest only to be reborn in the spring when plants sprout.[1]


According to Osirian myth, Osiris was its pharaoh during the Age of Legend. His brother Set was jealous of his power, so he killed him, dismembered his corpse, and scattered the pieces. His wife Isis gathered the pieces and magically stitched them back, bringing Osiris back to life.[1]


Osiris appears like a mummy with green skin, signifying his portfolio of fertility. He wears a white atef crown with two ostrich feathers and carries a crook and flail, the pharaoh's symbols of office.[1]


Osiris is the brother of Isis, Nephthys and Set. He is married to Isis, and Horus is their son. He also has another son, Anubis, with his sister Nephthys. He is an ally of Anubis and Pharasma, and Set's archenemy.[1]

A Family Tree of the Osirian Pantheon


Osiris' priests consist mostly of paladins, druids and clerics. Many mystery cults are dedicated to Osiris, and their members know the secrets of life and death.[1]
