Closeup of a Painted Wooden Ancient Egyptian Figure depicting Ptah Sokar Osiris is a captivating and historically significant artifact. The wooden figure, which has weathered the ages, stands as a symbol of ancient Egyptian spirituality and belief in the afterlife. Unfortunately, the colors on the statue have faded over time due to the effects of aging, but it retains a profound aura of antiquity. The statue represents Ptah Sokar Osiris, a deity associated with resurrection and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian mythology. Ptah Sokar Osiris is symbolizing both the divine and the connection to the spiritual realm. The aged wooden material of the figure reveals its antiquity and the passage of centuries. The fading of the original colors, while a result of the ravages of time, also adds to the statue's aura of historical significance. The white background isolates the figure, drawing attention to the worn and aged appearance of the wooden artifact. This statue would have played a crucial role in ancient Egyptian funerary practices, representing protection and guidance for the deceased as they embarked on their journey to the afterlife.Image ID#: 32377 / Category: Religion, Objects, Arts / Price: 499$
