|English translation:ear of wheat, sprig of lavender|
As well as representing the creative principle of Atum-Ra (who, like Osiris, was also symbolised by a bull) the phallic head at the core of the Sacrest also symbolises the virility and creative power of Osiris. The seed being emitted is appropriately wheat. This particular grain was believed to be Osiris' divine gift to the Egyptians and it was on this foodstuff that Egyptian civilisation relied for thousands of years. A single ear of wheat became the main spiritual symbol of Osiris' annual death and resurrection.
Twenty-eight stalks of wheat
rise up from the body of Osiris. In the ancient world, the ear of wheat was in fact a universal symbol of the saviour-god of death-and-resurrection. The name of this deity varied from one culture to another, but his essential nature and function - 'Revealer of the Mystery of Man' - was the same. The following edited Gnostic text underlines this fact:
