Osiris is the Egyptian god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead. He was classically depicted as a green-skinned man with a pharaoh's beard, partially mummy-wrapped at the legs, wearing a distinctive crown with two large ostrich feathers at either side, and holding a symbolic crook and flail. He is known to be a merciful judge of the dead in the afterlife and also the underworld agency that granted all life, including sprouting vegetation and the fertile flooding of the Nile River. He is married to his sister Isis.
