Artwork Description

Isis loved Osiris. His brother Set became jealous and hacked Osiris into pieces and scattered them around the world. Isis gathered the pieces of her love together and breathed life back into him. They conceived Horus from whom, it was believed, all Egyptian pharoahs descended. Isis and her lover originally came from the planet Sirius.

Woah. Im like a huge Egyptian fan...I study it like all the time and am a follower of the Egyptian religion, many arent anymore. Isis is my favorite of the gods. I think you did an awesome job on this. Keep doin more Egyptian work! ^.^

I just had to say, i loved this picture from the very first. Very rarely do you see Eygptian men represented in artwork, and i think you did a beautiful job on Osiris. He looks like just the kind of man i would like. Secondly, i love how you depicted both Osiris and Isis as Black Deites, instead of the usual 'white egyptians' you normally see in art. Just a beautiful painting, gives me shudders every time i look at it. You've made something quite lovely.

I love the Egyptian gods. Also, the constellation "Orion" is Asar (Osiris) in the Egyptian Zodiac, and corresponds to the pyramid complex. Sure points to larger things, no?

Art at its best.
