Learn a little bit more about Anubis, god of the afterlife:
Anubis was the was the jackal-headed god of the afterlife who guided the souls of the dead through the underworld kingdom of his father, Osiris. He was the deity of cemeteries, embalming and the protector of graves. Anubis was known as a friend of the dead.
To help the deceased pass smoothly into the Afterlife, the Egyptians conducted elaborate ceremonies and mummifications. Anubis played an important role in this journey. He helped judge souls after their death and guided lost souls into the afterlife in Duat – the realm of the dead in ancient Egyptian mythology.
Jackals were associated with death as they roamed around cemeteries. Egyptians believed that the color black represented good fortune and rebirth. It was the color of the fertile soil of the Nile that grew yearly crops. They named the land Khem, meaning ‘The Black Land’.
