This dying resurrecting bridegroom couple is one of the oldest on earth and there are several versions to their story.  In the one pictured here, Osiris is not chopped up into little pieces.  Isis holds him like Mary holds the dead Jesus in her lap in the pieta.  The grief of Isis resurrects Osiris.
