Anubis was the god of embalming, the process of preserving a corpse. Since jackals were often seen in cemetaries he took on the form of a partial human with the head of a jackal. Based upon one tale of the gods, when Osiris was killed by the evil god Seth, Anubis oversaw the mummification of his body. He is also featured in the weighing of the heart ceremony (bottom picture).
