The Resurrection of Osiris

The walls of one of the rooms, located on the second floor of the Temple of Hat-Hor, are containing 16 bas-reliefs, illustrating the ceremonies of Osiris Resurrection. The entrance to this small room is possible only through the roof of the Temple.

The details, concerning the history of Osiris Resurrection are described in the book of Wallis Budge: "Osiris and the Egyptian Resurrection". This book has translation of "Pyramid Texts" and also the transcription of the bas-reliefs, most of which are located in the Temple of Dendera.

The bas-reliefs are too dark for making good quality pictures, so below are the drawing of Auguste Mariette.
