Ancient Egyptian God Anubis with Balance of Souls Statue

Ancient Anubis God Statue, black gold finish, crafted in high quality composite resin and hand painted. This statue depicts anubis in the afterlife, kneeling with scales in his hands, in the altar of Ankh which symbolizes the key to the afterlife. Being the God of the dead, you can see skulls all around him. Souls heavier than a feather would be devoured by Ammit, and souls lighter than a feather would ascend to a heavenly existence. Anubis is the Egyptian god of mummification and the afterlife as well as the patron god of lost souls and the helpless. He is one of the oldest gods of Egypt, who most likely developed from the earlier (and much older) jackal god Wepwawet with whom he is often confused. Anubis’ image is seen on royal tombs from the First Dynasty of Egypt (3150-2890 BCE) but it is certain he had already developed a cult following prior to this period in order to be invoked on the tomb’s walls for protection.

He is thought to have developed in response to wild dogs and jackals digging up newly buried corpses at some point in the Predynastic Period in Egypt (6000-3150 BCE) as the Egyptians believed a powerful canine god was the best protection against wild canines. The weighing of souls is a religious motif in which a person’s life is assessed by weighing their soul (or some other part of them) immediately before or after death in order to judge their fate. This motif is most commonly seen in Medieval Christianity. This concept of weighing something in order to judge the fate of the deceased is first seen in ancient Egypt around 2.400 B.C., where people’s hearts are weighed on a scale against a feather. The Weighing of the Heart would take place in Duat (the Underworld) which the dead were judged by Anubis, using a feather, representing Ma’at, the goddess of truth and justice responsible for maintaining order in the universe. The heart was the seat of the life-spirit (ka). Hearts heavier than the feather of Ma’at were rejected and eaten by Ammit, the Devourer of Souls. Ancient Egyptian God Anubis with Balance of Souls Statue measures: 9 inches / 23 cm x 7 inches / 18 cm x 12 inches / 30.5 cm.
