Ancient Egyptian Series: Osiris

So, in my Ancient Egyptian inspired series, I decided to go with Osiris. He is one of my favorite Gods of the Ancient Egyptian pantheon (I have him tattooed on my arm and had named my cat after him!) Osiris was married to Isis and was the father of Horus (and Anubis, but that's a looooong story). Osiris was killed by his brother Set and lived in the underworld and was the God of the dead. If you have ever seen depictions of the weighing/judging of the heart, you then saw Osiris presiding over it and passing judgement on the deceased.

Ok, enough of a history lesson. Osiris was green skinned and wore the white linens that the pharaohs wore. So, I used green in this look. Yes two green looks posted in a row!!! I also used a white, luminescent color to represent the linens that he wore.
