Anubis here is depicted in black, a color that the ancient Egyptians associated with regeneration, life, the soil of the Nile River, and the discoloration of the corpse after embalming.
The ancient Egyptians adorned their homes as well as their tombs, holy burial places and alters with similar statues, paying homage to the revered god Anubis.
Anubis, the ancient Egyptian god of death, mummification, embalming, the afterlife, cemeteries, tombs, and the Underworld. He was one of the most frequently depicted and mentioned ancient Egyptian gods.
He is depicted here in his classic form as a Jackal. This is because the ancient Egyptians associated Jackals with death, because they lurked around cemeteries ate decomposing flesh. Thus, by making Anubis the patron deity of jackals, they hoped to protect the bodies of the deceased from being devoured.
