Anubis had the head of a jackal, a wild dog that commonly scavenged in cemeteries. Archaeologists identified Anubis’s sacred animal as the African Wolf, an Egyptian canid. Anubis was prayed to protect the dead. He also helped ISIS mummify Osiris and gave him the title of king of the Underworld. Like many ancient Egyptian deities, Anubis had different identities at different times. Anubis was portrayed as the protector of tombs as early as the First Dynasty of Egypt. He was also an embalmer. In the Middle Kingdom, he was replaced as Lord of the underworld by Osiris. It is now known as a god who guides souls into the afterlife. Anubis is depicted in black, a color that symbolizes regeneration, life, the soil of the Nile, and the discoloration of a body after embalming. Anubis is related to his brother Upuot and is another god depicted with a dog-shaped head, but shown in gray or white. Anubis’s wife was Amber, and his daughter was Kebecet. Most of the titles, Egyptian ancient art Anubis received were related to his status as a god of funerals, such as “He who is upon his mountain”, which emphasized his status as the patron saint of the dead and the grave, and The title “He who is in the place of Embalming” suggests his association with mummification. And just like many ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses play different roles in different texts. In the trial of the “weight of the heart” after death, Anubis acted as a scale.

The ancestry of Egyptian ancient art Anubis varies according to myth, age, and origin
The ancestry of Egyptian ancient art Anubis varies according to myth, age, and origin. In early mythology, Anubis was the son of the sun god Ra. In the coffin text of the first intermediate period, Anubis is the son of the cow goddess Heat or the cat head goddess Bastet. Other relevant records depict him as the son of La and Nefertiti. Later, he was the son of Seth and Nefertiti, which was easily accepted. Because Nefertiti is considered the wife of Seth, Seth is also a dog-headed god. In the Osiris myth, after Seth killed Osiris, Anubis assisted Isis to mummify Osiris. Because of these connections, Anubis became the patron saint of the embalmers. According to the drawings in the Book of the Dead, during the funeral ceremony made by the mummy, the priests often wear the jackal mask to support the upright mummy.
