Anubis is the Greek name for Ancient Egyptian God – Anpu (Inpu) who is closely associated with mummification and the afterlife. Usually, the head of Anubis was depicted as an Egyptian Canid (relative the modern domestic dog) while often having the body of a man. Anubis was worshiped throughout Egypt and priests would wear Anubis masks while performing the mummification process.
