Anubis, God of the Dead, represented with a head of a jackal or simply as a jackal opened the road to the other world and presided over embalming ceremonies. After a funeral, Anubis would take the deceased by the hand and introduce him into the presence of the sovereign judges where the soul of the deceased would be weighed.

Anubis was the Guardian of Offerings brought to the ceremony by heirs of the deceased and he also guarded the mummy from evil forces in the night. When the body was embalmed, a priest wearing a jackal mask acted as Anubis's representative. He also was the guardian of the Sacred Esoteric Mysteries.

The Egyptians didn't worship animals as many people think when looking at statues like this, but the forces of nature that the animals show and symbolized. In the case of Anubis, jackals could be heard howling in the desert to the west of the Nile at sunset at the time when burials took place and Egyptians believed their howling was guiding the soul of the deceased to the afterlife.

In this bonded stone statue, Anubis stands carrying the ankh in one hand and the “waas” scepter of divine power in the other. He stands 8 1/2 inches (21.5 cm) high with hand painted detail.
