This sculpture was dedicated to Horus, Osiris, and Isis, the most important triad of gods in the ancient Egyptian religion. Osiris wears the Atef crown and carries the royal crook and flail, while his son Horus is represented as a falcon-headed man, Isis has on her head the hieroglyph and symbol of her name, Isis, represented as a step throne or seat. She wears an elegant feather dress. Osiris was the god of the underworld and resuscitation while his sister and wife Isis was considered the symbolic mother of the Pharaoh and was worshipped as the "Great of Magic" and regarded as the "Eye of Ra". Their son Horus is traditionally considered the first Pharaoh of Egypt and at later times, the spiritual king where the Pharaoh is only his representative on Earth.
