Symbols - What does heaven look like
Osiris was an Egyptian ‘god’, which means he was a person who had achieved annihilation on the spiritual path. His dismemberment story was a rebirth experience.
He was classically depicted as a green-skinned man with a ‘pharaoh's beard’ [see link below to Ball and Polo stick] partially mummy-wrapped at the legs [swaddling clothes], wearing a distinctive crown with two large ostrich feathers at either side.
