Anubis Reversed

Inktober 2018- Day 9 (of 16)

Like I said in my previous post, I’ve been under the weather. Normally Bastet and Anubis are depicted in black or bronze. I wasn’t up to painting today so he’s Anubis Reversed. For those that don’t know, Anubis is a god of the underworld/afterlife and mummification. He judged souls on whether they were worthy to enter the realm of the dead. Interestingly, he’s normally depicted in black because of the underworld theme/transformation (much like Scorpio) and also due to the mummification processing. Which caused the wrapping to turn black. The more you know, huh?
