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.
