    About

    This replica of the Egyptian god Anubis has been modelled on an original piece within the British Museum collection. The original, from the late period of Ancient Egypt, is a Bronze figure of Anubis as a standing jackal-headed figure wearing armlets, bracelets and anklets.

    Anubis, the god of cemetries and embalming, was associated with the mummification and protection of the dead for their journey into the afterlife. Originally thought to be based on the jackals that roamed cemeteries at night, Anubis was the god of embalming rituals and adopted a human form with a dog’s head. He appears in Book of the Dead papyri undertaking the mummification of the deceased. In legend it was Anubis who took care of the body of Osiris after he had been murdered by his evil brother Seth. In the Valley of the Kings tombs were sealed with images of Anubis to protect the dead against evil.
