Image Details

Image Title

:  Judgment.

Alternate Title

: Final judgment scene before Osiris, the judge of the dead, previous to the admission of the soul into the mansions of the blessed. Osiris is seated on his throne, attended by Isis and Nepthys; and before him are the Four Genii of Amenti standing on a lotus. Horus introduces the deceased, after his actions have been weighed in the scales of Truth, and recorded by Thoth. Anubis presides over the balance; and Cerberus is present, seated at the gates, into which the deceased is conducted by Horus, followed by his sister, who was probably also his wife.
