Anubis Egyptian God of Underworld Mummification Statue

This Egyptian God Anubis Statue is made of designer composite resin, hand painted and polished. It depicts Anubis performing the mummification. Mummification is one of the defining customs in ancient Egyptian society for people today. The practice of preserving the human body is believed to be a quintessential feature of Egyptian life. Yet even mummification has a history of development and was accessible to different ranks of society in different ways during different periods. There were at least 3 different processes of mummification according to Herodotus. They range from “the most perfect” to the method employed by the “poorer classes“. The most expensive process was to preserve the body by dehydration and protect against pests, such as insects. Almost all of the actions Herodotus described serve 1 of these 2 functions. First, the brain was removed from the cranium through the nose, the gray matter was discarded. Modern mummy excavations have shown that instead of an iron hook inserted through the nose as Herodotus claims, a rod was used to liquefy the brain via the cranium, which then drained out the nose by gravity. The embalmers then rinsed the skull with certain drugs that mostly cleared any residue of brain tissue and also had the effect of killing bacteria. Next, the embalmers made an incision along the flank with a sharp blade fashioned from an Ethiopian stone and removed the contents of the abdomen.

Herodotus does not discuss the separate preservation of these organs and their placement either in special jars or back in the cavity, a process that was part of the most expensive embalming, according to archaeological evidence. The abdominal cavity was then rinsed with palm wine and an infusion of crushed, fragrant herbs and spices. The cavity was then filled with spices including myrrh, cassia, and, Herodotus notes, “every other sort of spice except frankincense“, also to preserve the person. The body was further dehydrated by placing it in natron, a naturally occurring salt, for 70 days. Herodotus insists that the body did not stay in the natron longer than 70 days. Any shorter time and the body is not completely dehydrated, any longer, and the body is too stiff to move into position for wrapping. The embalmers then wash the body again and wrapped it with linen bandages. The bandages were covered with a gum that modern research has shown is both waterproofing agent and an antimicrobial agent. At this point, the body was given back to the family. These “perfectmummies were then placed in wooden cases that were human-shaped. Richer people placed these wooden cases in stone Sarcophagi that provided further protection. The family placed the Sarcophagus in the tomb upright against the wall, according to Herodotus.

Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women’s secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children. As with many deities in Egyptian religion, she also played a role in the afterlife. She is sometimes depicted as a guide and helper to the dead although this was not one of her primary duties. She was the daughter of the Sun God Ra and is associated with the concept of the Eye of Ra (the all-seeing eye) and the Distant Goddess (a female deity who leaves Ra and returns to bring transfromation). Bastet was one of the most popular deities of ancient Egypt as she was the protector of everyone’s home and family.

The bottom is felted to help keep your furniture scratch-free. He makes a great gift for enthusiasts of ancient Egypt mythology. Anubis, also known as Inpudecay“, was the ancient Egyptian Jackal-God of the Underworld and Mummification. Anubis was worshipped as the inventor of embalming and the one who embalmed the dead Osiris, thereby helping to preserve him that he might live again. The oldest known mention of Anubis is in the Old Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the king.

Anubis is also a God in Tuareg Berber mythology. Anubis takes various titles in connection with his funerary role, such as He-Who-Is-Upon-His-Mountain, which underscores his importance as a protector of the deceased and their tombs, and the title He-Who-Is-In-The-Place-Of-Embalming, associating him with the process of mummification. Like many ancient Egyptian deities, Anubis assumes different roles in various contexts, and no public procession in Egypt would be conducted without an Anubis to march at the head. There are a lot of different versions about his birth and conception. In early mythology, he is protrayed as a son of Ra. In the Coffin Texts from the First Intermediate Period (2181-2055 BC), he is the son of Hesat or Bastet. Some traditions depicted him as son of Ra and Nephthys, others as the illegitimate son of Nephthys and Osiris, that was later adopted by Usir‘ wife, Aset, and others as son of Nephthys and Set.

In the version which he is the son of Nephthys and Usir, it is said that Nephthys tricked her brother, Usir, into fathering her child by using Aset appeareance. Nephthys told her husband-brother, Set, that the child was his but him soon found out. As Set hated Usir, he then planned to murder the child when he was born. Nephthys therefore, abandoned the child at birth hiding him in the marshes by the Nile River. The child was taken care by jackals and eventually found by Aset that raised Inpu as her own kid. When he became an adult, the repaid her by becoming her protector. The version in which he is the son of Nephthys and Set is not that different. It is said that, after Nephthys got pregnant with Set’s child, she tried to hide the pregnancy as she knew how violent Set could be. Fearing for the baby, Nephthys gave Inpu to Aset that eventually raised him. Ancient Egyptian Jackal God Anubis Bust Statue sizes: 5 inches / 13 cm x 4.5 inches / 11.5 cm x 9.5 inches / 24 cm.

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.
