Wallpaper Description:
Anubis - the Jackal-God of mummification, he assisted in the rites by which a dead man was admitted to the underworld.
Anubis was worshipped as the inventor of embalming and who embalmed the dead Osiris, thereby helping to preserve him so that he might live again.
Anubis is portrayed as a man with the head of a jackal holding the divine sceptre carried by kings and gods; as simply a black jackal or as a dog accompanying Isis. His symbol was a black and white ox-hide splattered with blood and hanging from a pole. It's meaning is unknown.
Anubis had three important functions.
He supervised the embalming of bodies.
He received the mummy into the tomb and performed the “Opening of the Mouth” ceremony and then conducted the soul in the Field of Celestial Offerings.
Most importantly though, Anubis monitored the “Scales of Truth” so as to protect the dead from Deception and possible Eternal Death.
