osiris · god of the dead and ruler of the underworld
A god of the earth and vegetation, Osiris symbolized in his death the yearly drought and in his miraculous rebirth the periodic flooding of the Nile and the growth of grain. He was a god-king who was believed to have given Egypt civilization. Osiris was the first child of Nut and Geb, and therefore the brother of Seth, Nephthys, and Isis. He was married to his sister, Isis. He was also the father of Horus and Anubis. These traditions state that Nephthys (mother of Anubis) assumed the form of Isis, seduced him (perhaps with wine) and she became pregnant with Anubis.
Are you a space divine or a forest divine? Are you a marble divine or an obsidian divine? Are you a silver divine or a gold divine? Are you an arms divine or an eyes divine? Are you a flowers divine or a fruits divine?
I actually painted myself gold for this! I love how gold has different symbolic meanings across cultures, however, for me I wanted to use it to specifically represent truth, and the rebirth of oneself through the pursuit of it- a theme that really resonates me at this point in my life.
