W1982 Osiris enthroned (detailed description to download here)

 thronethrone3

Summary: Here we see Osiris seated on his throne with Ammut (the Devourer) before him and Isis and Nephthys behind.

This scene, together with the weighing of the heart scene, the scene of jubilation, and the deceased being led before the enthroned Osiris who resides in judgement, may all be considered part of a larger judgement scene, related to chapter 125 of the Book of the Dead. One might even add that the mound scene is also part of the same judgement scene, which would mean that the whole side of this coffin depicts judgement.
