Emerging from the Pack


Emerging from the Pack

There’s a long held belief that the Egyptians got the idea for the god Anubis by watching the jackals in the area that sometimes fed on dead animals as well as humans. I have been thinking of what it might be like to see one of the jackals changing into the god Anubis. This painting brings that idea to life so to speak. There’s a small “pack” of jackals roaming the desert including a couple of almost solid black jackals- one of which has been chosen to become the important god Anubis who was in charge of the embalming process as well as helping to lead the departed through the harrowing experience known as the afterlife.
