Egyptian Mythology Picture

Okay, so I have become greatly obsessed with Egyptian mythology as of late. My favorite stories are especially the different interpretations of how Set killed Osiris.

In the story (or at least the story written by the Cult of Osiris), Set first managed to fool his brother into getting into a box which he then shut on him and sealed with lead. Then, then he threw the "coffin" into the Nile River. Isis, Osiris' wife, eventually found this coffin and opened it only to find him dead. So, she used some magic and brought him back to life (and she got inpregnated with Horus during the time he was alive). Then, he died again and she hid his body in the desert so Set couldn't find it. Isis then went off and had Horus and was busy caring for him when Set went on a hunting trip and found the body, Enraged, he cut up Osiris' body into little pieces and scattered them across the land. Isis, then went looking for the piece and managed to find all but the phallus (which fish had eaten. By the way, don't ask what a phallus is it's very very dirty talk~ ;D) and put the pieces back together so he could have a proper burial. The gods were then impressed by Isis' devotion to her husband and resurrected Osiris as the god of the underworld.
