He Is Depicted as a Black Canine, a Jackal-Dog Hybrid with Pointed Ears, or as a Muscular Man with the Head of a Jackal. The Color Black Was Chosen for Its Symbolism, Not Because Egyptian Dogs or Jackals Were Black. Black Symbolized the Decay of the Body as Well as the Fertile Soil of the Nile River Valley Which Represented Regeneration and Life. The Powerful Black Canine, Then, Was the Protector of the Dead Who Made Sure They Received Their Due Rights in Burial and Stood by Them in the Afterlife to Assist Their Resurrection.
In This Role, He Was Associated with Eternal Justice and Maintained This Association Later, Even After He Was Replaced by Osiris Who Was Then Given the Honorary Title'First of the Westerners'. In Earlier Times, Anubis Was Considered the Son of Ra and Hesat (Associated with Hathor), but After His Assimilation into the Osiris Myth He Was Held to Be the Son of Osiris and His Sister-In-Law Nephthys. He Is the Earliest God Depicted on Tomb Walls and Invoked for Protection of the Dead and Is Usually Shown Tending to the Corpse of the King, Presiding Over Mummification and Funerals, or Standing with Osiris, Thoth, or Other Gods at the Weighing of the Heart of the Soul in the Hall of Truth in the Afterlife. His Daughter Is Qebhet (Also Known as Kabechet) Who Brings Cool Water to the Souls of the Dead in the Hall of Truth and Comforts the Newly Deceased.Anubis' Association with Nephthys (Known as "Friend to the Dead") and Qebhet Emphasizes His Long-Standing Role as Protector of the Dead and a Guide for the Souls in the Afterlife. (Name & Role in Religion). The Name "Anubis" Is the Greek Form of the Egyptian Anpu (Or Inpu) Which Meant "To Decay" Signifying His Early Association with Death. He Had Many Epithets Besides "First of the Westerners" and Was Also Known as "Lord of the Sacred Land" (Referencing the Area of the Desert Where Necropoleis Were Located), "He Who Is Upon His Sacred Mountain" (Referencing the Cliffs Around a Given Necropolis Where Wild Dogs and Jackals Would Congregate), "Ruler of the Nine Bows" (A Reference to the Phrase Used for Traditional Enemies of Egypt Who Were Represented as Nine Captives Bowing Before the King), "The Dog Who Swallows Millions" (Simply Referring to His Role as a God of Death), "Master of Secrets" (Since He Knew What Waited Beyond Death), "He Who Is in the Place of Embalming" (Indicating His Role in the Mummification Process), and "Foremost of the Divine Booth" Referencing His Presence in the Embalming Booth and Burial Chamber. As His Various Epithets Make Clear, Anubis Was Central to Every Aspect of an Individual's Death Experience in the Role of Protector and Even Stood with the Soul After Death as a Just Judge and Guide. Scholar Geraldine Pinch Comments on This, Writing, "Anubis Helped to Judge the Dead and He and His Army of Messengers Were Charged with Punishing Those Who Violated Tombs or Offended the Gods" (104). He Was Especially Concerned with Controlling the Impulses of Those Who Sought to Sow Disorder or Aligned Themselves with Chaos. 8.46 Inch / 21.5 cm.
