Venus: Guide to the Underworld

Wings outstretched, Isis holds a sail and ankh to become the throne for the sun god Ra, carrying him across the sky and into the Underworld at night. Below, hawk-headed Horus has assembled the Djed and Ankh onto the "Was" staff as a lasso or life line to resurrect his dead father Osiris. This is the wish for the dead king inside the sarcophagus.
