Anubis is the jackal-headed god whose domain was the interface between the material world of time and space, and the invisible world of the Afterlife. He was one of the most important gods because he knew the way to the Underworld and back. It was Anubis who helped Isis and Nephthys find Osiris and put his body back together after the attack by Seth. They did this by wrapping Osiris up in long strips of linen, creating the first mummy. Anubis was the god of the Underworld, and taught Egyptians the arts of embalming and mummification.
