Triad of Osiris, Isis, and Horus

Late Period–Ptolemaic Period

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 134

The immensely popular gods Osiris, Isis and Harpokrates are here represented as a triad standing in a row on a single base. Several loops study the group - one projecting from the side of the base at right angles, and others behind Harpokrates and Osiris: whether they are intended to allow for fixation in multiple contexts, or a rather a more symbolic addition, is a question.
