Anubis

 

ANUBIS

Anubis was depicted as a jackal.

Anubis was the Egyptian god of the underworld who guided the spirits of the dead into the afterlife.

It was his job to waken the dead for their final judgement and oversee 'the weighing of the heart'.

This was the method of judgement used to decide if a soul was worthy to enter the underworld.

He was also the god who invented mummification. After Seth had killed Osiris, Anubis wrapped his body in linen to prevent it from decaying.
