A mythology lesson/reminder From Wiki:
"Set was hunting one night and came across the body of Osiris. Enraged, he tore
the body into fourteen pieces and scattered them throughout the land. Isis
gathered up all the parts of the body, less the phallus (which was eaten by a
fish) and bandaged them together for a proper burial. The gods were impressed by
the devotion of Isis and resurrected Osiris as the god of the underworld.
Because of his death and resurrection, Osiris is associated with the flooding
and retreating of the Nile and thus with the crops along the Nile valley."
