Anubis is one of the most mysterious and also one of the oldest gods that Egyptian mythology produced.
God of the dead, god of the underworld, god at mummification and son of the great Osiris. Anubis is usually depicted as half man, half jackal.
Anubis' career as god of the underworld. In this, he had an equal role as Osiris later. Anubis became the god who mainly did his work in mummifying the deceased and guarding the gateway to the world of Osiris.
Anubis was at the mummification. The priests present at this often wore the mask of a jackal in honour of Anubis. Anubis was at the all-important 'opening of the mouth' and weighing of the heart.
The heart of the deceased had to be weighed on the scales of Maät. If the heart was as light as a feather then Anubis brought the dead person to Osiris, if the heart was too heavy then Ammit, was allowed to devour it. Ammit was a kind of hellhound, or lion, but there are many different depictions. Maät's feather was symbolic of truth, Ammit of agony and evil.
