Anubis is the Greek version of his name, the ancient Egyptians knew him as Anpu (or Inpu). Anubis was an extremely ancient deity whose name appears in the oldest mastabas of the Old kingdom and the Pyramid texts as a guardian and protector of the dead. He was originally a god of the underworld, but became associated specifically with the embalming process and funeral rites. His name is from the same root as the word of a royal child, inpu. However, it is closely related to the word “inp” which means “to decay”. The ancient Egyptians believed that the preservation of the body and the use of sweet-smelling herbs and plants would help the deceased because Anubis would sniff the mummy and only let the pure move on to paradise. According to early myths, Anubis took on and defeated the nine bows (the collective name for the traditional enemies of Egypt) gaining a further epithet “Jackal ruler of the bows”. Anubis is depicted in black, a color that symbolizes both rebirth and the discoloration pf the corpse after embalming. Portrayed as a man with a head of a Jackal holding the divine sceptre carried by kings and gods. An exquisite piece that displays how Egyptians interpreted death in the ancient history and how they honored their lost ones.
