Osiris is among the best-known Egyptian deities and is God of resurrection, judge of the dead, and ruler of the realms of the dead. Evidence of his worship has been found as early as the middle of the Fifth Dynasty (c. 25th Century BCE). When Set, brother of Osiris and God of chaos, murdered Osiris and cut him to pieces, Isis, the wife of Osiris, gathered the parts of the god back together, reconstructed and mummified his body, and facilitated his resurrection as Lord of the Underworld. As he represented life after death, so too was Osiris seen as a god of vegetation—guiding the fertile land through the annual cycles of death and rebirth. It has been theorized that the god may have once ruled as a living person in predynastic Egypt (5500-3100 BCE), which may be connected to his appearance. Osiris is most often seen bearing the shepherd’s crook and flail and is crowned with an ostrich-feathered variation on the Hedjet, the white crown of Upper Egypt.
