The second statue in Bill’s bedroom is of Osiris, the Egyptian god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead. He is usually depicted as a green-skinned man with a pharaoh’s beard, partially mummy-wrapped at the legs, wearing a distinctive crown with two large ostrich feathers at either side, and holding a symbolic crook and flail.
Osiris was married to Isis and when he was murdered by his brother Set she collected his body parts together and brought him back to life. The pharaohs are therefore associated with Osiris in death as they would rise from death, just like him, through imitative magic.
