Standing, mummiform bronze statuette of Osiris with scepter and flail grasped in hands. White crown with uraeus, flanked by feathers and ram's horns. Feathers and necklace inlaid in gold. Eyes probably inlaid. No Inscription.
Condition: Intact. Most of gold inlay missing from left plume. Corrosion over eyes prevents determining whether they are inlaid. Slight spots of disease on base. Good work.
