Cardona-Hine's Osiris Lord of the Underworld Museum Egyptian Painting
Click to enlarge image(s)
This is one of the strongest and most challenging of the Isis/Osiris Egyptian paintings.

Cardona-Hine himself says of it: There is no life without death, so how do we honor this inescapable fact? I believe we have to do it by becoming aware of the very nature of reality, which is dream. Osiris undergoes death at the hands of his brother, Seth, and Isis brings him back to life. And who is Osiris, and who is Isis? Wash your skeleton every day, the Peruvian poet Cesar Vallejo says. Even the good is good, how much more so the bad, a Zen Master states.

Here we are presented with death itself coming out of the darkness all around.

The painting is in a private collection. It measures 70 x 64.
