| Anubis was the Egyptian |
God of funerary rituals and the protector of the dead as well as the
judge of souls and ruler of the underworld. Since it was his duty to
weigh souls (along with the Goddess Maat) as a means of discovering the content of honesty, Anubis was also the God of truth.
He is usually seen as a man with the head of a jackal holding the
divine sceptre carried by kings and Gods, but he can also be found on
the walls of tombs as a black jackal or dog accompanying Isis.
By no means an evil God, his domain of graves and tombs was
nevertheless a frightening one, but then, one that offered the chance
of an afterlife.
But why did the Egyptian God of the Dead have the head of a jackal?
Well, jackals have the uncomfortable habit of lurking about tombs and
graves, which was one of the reasons why the Egyptians sought to make
their tombs more elaborate; to keep the bodies safe from the rather
smart black canines. It is only natural therefore that a God of
mummification would be connected with them. By worshipping Anubis, they
hoped to invoke him to protect their deceased and assure their safe
journey through the underworld, his domain.
