[Cosmo Anubis] – Irina Sigitova + Hauteart

400 

In another papyrus work by the artist titled Cosmo Anubis, we find the god of death himself, the oldest and most popular of all the ancient Egyptian deities. He was like a superhero of the time, holding great power over man’s physical and spiritual continuation in the next life. He was the ‘keeper of the scales’, who weighed up the deceased’s heart before deciding on their fate. In this depiction, Darth Vaader takes his place, weighing up one’s deeds before metering out justice. A force for good or evil, characters from popular culture play a large role in our collective psyche to this day.

Description

Anubis is known as the god of death and is the oldest and most popular of the ancient Egyptian deities. The ancient Egyptians held Anubis in high esteem because they believed that he had great power over their physical and spiritual selves when they died. References to the origin of Anubis are found in texts relating to the Old Kingdom. His fame lasted until the dawn of the Middle Kingdom. It was originally called by the ancient Egyptians: Inpu or Anpu.

In ancient history, Anubis was known as the absolute ruler of the underworld (called Duat). Later, this role passed to Osiris.

“Keeper of the Scales”: one of his many roles, his task was to determine the fate of the souls of the dead. As depicted in the Book of the Dead, Anubis weighed the heart of the dead on a scale of feathers.

The pen represents a lie or the truth. If the scale of justice were directed to the heart, the dead man would be consumed by Ammit, a female demon dubbed the “devourer of the dead”.

And if the scale of justice leaned towards the pen, Anubis would lead the deceased to Osiris, who would help him ascend to heaven for a decent existence. God of Embalming and Mummification: Anubis played an important role in overseeing the embalming and mummification of the dead.
