The Ancient Egyptian civilization was powerful and celebrated for its achievements, artworks, and wealth.
It should come to as little surprise that this world has inspired body art.
There are many designs to choose from that is not only beautiful but also symbolic.
Anubis, also called Anpu, is an ancient Egyptian god of funerary practices and care of the dead.
He is represented by a jackal or the figure of a man with the head of a jackal.
Jackals were associated with death, because they lurked around cemeteries and would eat decomposing flesh.
Anubis the patron deity of jackals, was associated with the funerary cult and the care of the dead.
The Egyptians hoped to protect the bodies from being devoured.
His later role was as the “conductor of souls.”
He was also reputed to be the inventor of embalming, an art he first employed on the corpse of Osiris.
