These pieces were inspired by Anubis (Anpu), the jackal-headed Prince of the Duat (the Ancient Egyptian/Kemetic afterlife) and God of Embalming. He acts as guide and protector for the dead, those undergoing transformations, and anyone on significant journeys—either physical or metaphorical.
In the earliest phases of Egyptian mythology, Anubis is called the Lord of the Duat and Foremost of the Westerners (an epithet that refers to the Egyptian practice of burying the dead on the west bank of the Nile); later, He was replaced in those roles by His father—or in some versions, uncle—Osiris (Ausar, Wesir) and so became Prince of the Duat and Lord of Embalming.
