Seller's Note/ This Osiris figurine arrived to NRC with horrible corrosions that hid all the details and has now been restored to its original "as cast" state; see the final photo. The old and crude stand to which it was was actually glued (the Horror!) has been replaced with a more modern and custom-crafted one for better display; no worries, no glue.
