STRANGE EGYPTIAN GOD STATUE (ANABUS) ON A BARGE IN LONDON

STRANGE EGYPTIAN GOD STATUE (ANABUS) ON A BARGE IN LONDON


Anubis was the god of embalming and the dead.

Since jackals were often seen in cemeteries, the ancient Egyptians believed that Anubis watched over the dead.

Anubis was the god who helped to embalm Osiris after he was killed by Seth. Thus, Anubis was the god who watched over the process of mummifying people when they died.

Priests often wore a mask of Anubis during mummification ceremonies.
