The reawakening of Osiris, Egyptian Museum, Cairo. The warmly colored gneiss sculpture from the 26th dynasty shows the rising god returning to life. His face of timeless beauty expresses serenity and the full certitude of youth renewed. He bears the crown called „tcheni” (the word meaning „to lift”, to „raise”), a headdress often associated with the rising sun, made of gold, electrum and bronze.
