Crowned Djed-pillar
Late Period, 6th-4th century BC

Provenance: Hugo Johanne Collection (Belgium 1956).


One of the most powerful symbols in Egypt.
An allegory of the God Osiris, implying all his rejuvenating, reincarnating and fertile elements.
The djed-pillar, a hieroglyph meaning stability and durability. It represent the spine of the god Osiris and also it has been said the tree-trunk in which Osiris body was grown into after he had been murdered by his brother Seth.
The pillar has the Atef-crown of Osiris, the twisted horns with Uraeus, the bundled reed, the pair of feathers and this is topped with the sun disc.
