This antique vase is a rare display piece, bringing a vintage touch to any space. It is perfect for lovers of Ancient Egyptian mythology and history. It is a truly spectacular piece since it features two of the most significant figures in ancient Egyptian history—Osiris and Horus.
Horus is the ancient Egyptian god of protection and power. Horus is depicted as a creator god and benevolent protector. He was thought to be the divine son of Isis and Osiris. Horus lost his left Eye in the war against Seth who murdered his father. Since then this eye has become an important sign of protection.
Horus is among the most famous and important gods worshipped in ancient Egypt. Horus’ name itself means "the falcon who soars above all the other inhabitants of the land" and he was also a frequent symbol of any ancient Egyptian king. He was also considered the mighty god of kingship and the sky.
Osiris symbolizes hope for eternal life. Osiris was both the god of fertility and the embodiment of the dead and resurrected king. He was considered the god and primary judge of the underworld. The ancient Egyptians honored him as a dead king, a former ruler who was brought back from the dead after being murdered by his brother Seth, the god of war, chaos and storms.
