A really nice Egyptian bronze of Osiris from (northern )
Lower  Egypt.



An interesting aspect of the Bronze Osiris figurines is
the way they can be identified in terms of region of manufacture.



If hands are placed one above the other, like this one
the piece was made in the north, Lower Egypt.



If the hands are positioned together then the piece was
made in Middle Egypt.



If the piece was made in Upper Egypt, from Abydos to
Aswan, then the hands will be crossed on the chest.



See G√ľnther Roeder, Bronzefiguren  224.



Sharp detailing and some nice red cuprite in the patina

117mm



Intact



Late Period circa 500 BC
