Anubis was first recorded as the protector of graves as early as the First Dynasty of Egypt between 3100 BCE and 2890 BCE. His original title as god of cemeteries and embalming gave him a close association with death and underworld, and he became known in Egyptian religion as the ruler of the underworld. By the rise of the Middle Kingdom in 2055 BCE, he was replaced in his role as the rule of the underworld by Osiris, but maintained a close link to embalming and as a guardian of soles in the afterlife traveling to the underworld.
Each 13 oz Antique Finish Silver Anubis Statue in this listing captures Anubis in this latter role. He is featured standing atop a sarcophagus as the guardian of the soul that rests within. It is said that Anubis would usher the departed to the afterlife, weight their heart on a scale against a feather to determine their suitability for a place in the realm of the dead.
Anubis was an imposing figure by nature, as one associated with death would be. He was always depicted with a strong, masculine physique and the body of a man, but the frightening and imposing head of a jackal.
The 13 oz Silver Anubis Statue includes the HotCo proprietary antique finish. Each statue has this antique finish to provide an heirloom-quality value to the piece, but also to highlight and bring out the intricate features of the design elements.
