Description It is believed that the symbolic connection of Anubis with the embalming process and with the Underworld, is due to the ancients observing the desert dogs and jackals being frequent around the shallow burial areas during the Predynastic period.With the usual Egyptian way of turning a dangerous animal or force into an advantage, Anubis was taken to be a protector for the deceased. In the Pyramid Texts he was mentioned in connection with the king as the one who frees the king from his earthly bindings so that he can ascend to the heavens and join the gods.
