When Osiris was killed by his brother, his body was broken into 14 pieces - one for each full moon in a year - and spread over Egypt. When Isis tried to collect all the pieces of her dead husband to reassemble him, she found that one piece (the phallus) had been consumed by a fish. She reassembled him anyway and fashioned a new phallus of gold (as you do), and they spent a passionate night together before Osiris had to return to the valley of death.

Osiris is a stole with 13 full moons and …. a fish. A fun knit, as well as a great conversation piece.
