Identifier:

Description:
Bronze standing figure of the god, Osiris, with arms at its side.

Throughout their history, ancient Egyptians typically left votive offerings, or gifts, for their gods. The goddess Hathor dominated the areas of domesticity, music, and love. Her followers might leave her fertility figurines, musical instruments, amulets, or jewelry. After the Late Period (664-332 B.C.E.), bronze votive offerings became more common. The divine family of Isis, Osiris, and Horus is well represented in this collection.
