Tuesday, July 8, 2014 Demonic Anubis

Hey y'all, I was in the mood for something different tonight, so I went demonic Anubis. I love all things to do with Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, ancient history and it made sense to me! The DRD Ancient Egypt- Anubis mask & staff that I got at OMG! inspired me to come up with this look. Since the 6th grade when I learned about Ancient Egypt, I have been obsessed. I learned to write my name in hieroglyphics, learned the names of all of the Gods and Goddesses and soaked up as much information about ancient Egypt that I could.  
I can still write my RL name, can you figure it out?

Here's your history lesson for the week. 

Anubis invented embalming to embalm Osiris, the first mummy. He was the guide of the dead. The Egyptians embalmed their dead, especially their pharaohs, to preserve them, since they thought that this helped them live for ever. 

The Ancient Egyptians believed that when you died, you traveled to the Hall of the Dead. There Anubis weighed your heart against the feather of Ma'at. Ma'at, the goddess of justice sits on top of the scales to make sure that the weighing is carried out properly. You can see Anubis steadying the scales to make the weighing fair. If your heart was lighter than the feather, you lived for ever. We still talk of "a heart as light as a feather" to mean care-free, and "heavy-hearted" to mean sad. If your heart was heavier than the feather then it was eaten by the demon Ammit, the Destroyer. Ammit had the head of a crocodile, the shoulders of a lion and the rump of a hippopotamus. These were all frightening animals for the Egyptians. Thoth, god of wisdom and writing, stands by to record what happens.
