Stele of Nanai

When Osiris (above center) was killed, he was sent to rule over the Underworld with his fellow god, Anubis (above left). Together they watched over the dead, while Osiris’s son, Horus, became the patron god of the living pharaohs. This detail from the ancient Egyptian Stele of Nanai shows the deceased adoring Osiris and Anubis.
