    Anubis is usually portrayed as a jackal-headed human, or in full canine form wearing a ribbon and holding a flail in the crook of his arm. His skin is usually depicted in black because the ancient Egyptians used that color for afterlife, death, and night.
    Originally, in the Ogdoad system, he was god of the underworld. His father was originally Ra in many papyrus records which were found in pyramids. But in after ages, his father was said to be Osiris, as he was the god of the dead, and his mother was said to be Nephthys.
    As one of the most important funerary rites in Egypt involved the process of embalming, so it was that Anubis became the god of embalming. High priests often wore Anubis masks to perform the ceremonial deeds of mummification. Anubis was considered to be the gatekeeper and ruler of the underworld, the “Guardian of the veil”, he was said to protect souls as they journeyed there, and thus became the patron of lost souls and orphans. —picture and text © 2008 Pagan Magic
