Ancient Anubis Bust

Anubis (also transcribed as Inpu or Anpu) is the Egyptian God of death and mummification. His Hieroglyph is a jackal and he often depicted as a human with the head of a dog or jackal.

In Egyptian mythology the heart of the deceased was weighed by Anubis, using a feather, representing Ma'at, the goddess of truth and justice. Only those whose heart was as light as the feather would be allowed an afterlife; those who failed the test would be consumed by Anubis..
