Anubis by IgaNinja Anubis by IgaNinja
Anubis God of the Dead.. who greeted the souls in the Underworld and protected them on their journey.

i drew him doing what he does best,handling dead bodys :laughing:

Ancient Egyptian texts say that Anubis silently walked through the shadows of life and death and lurked in dark places. He was watchful by day as well as by night. He also weighed the heart of the dead against the feather symbol of Ma’at, the goddess of truth. One of the reasons that the ancient Egyptians took such care to preserve their dead with sweet-smelling herbs was that it was believed Anubis would check each person with his keen canine nose. Only if they smelled pure would he allow them to enter the Kingdom of the Dead.

I think it might be the best picture you have ever drawn... I do not know exactly why, but when I look at it, it just feels like Anubis taking care of the dead. Even though the background is white, it just feels like in a tomb, and it's not scary, just peaceful. It's really great! :#1:
