In my post to Armand (May 28th 10:15) I wrote:
"With respect to the Djed pillar, Egyptologists will happily agree it only became unambiguously Osirian in the New Kingdom period. There is a documented recovery of two ivory Djed pillars in a first dynasty grave. Zaki Y Saad claimed them to be "the symbol of the god Osiris" but this is, admittedly, mere speculation perhaps based on Saad's own understanding of what the Djed pillar came later to represent."
I never suggested Osiris was anthropomorphised; there are many gods and goddesses who are not, Isis and Nephthys who appear in human form in the image Armand's post are two such examples - so Osiris not being anthropomorphised is not remarkable in any way - I fail to grasp the point you are trying to make here.
Osiris is the life eternal. In this respect, yes - he is sometimes depicted as the Djed.
However, at other times - and much more frequently - he is depicted in mummified form, where he is most certainly not depicted as a Djed pillar.
And while Osiris is commonly referred to as "Great God of Abydos" he is just as commonly referred to as "Lord of Djedu", a town. What significance are you attaching to Abydos? Solar temples?
Do I believe, like Armand, that the Djed was some kind of immortality or "healing" device? No. The abundance of ancient Egyptian mummies spanning 30 dynasties serves only to attest to its spectacular failure, if one believes such a notion. Let us not forget that the ivory Djed pillars were found in a first dynasty grave. That's a long time to master any such "technology" and where is the evidence in the archaeological record?
