Anubis Pewter Pendant

This Anubis pewter pendant is approximately 2 inches long x .75 inch wide and comes on a story card with a 33 inch long black cord and is available in either a pewter or antique brass finish.

Anubis is portrayed as a half human, jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the protector of the dead for their journey into the afterlife. In ancient Egypt the jackal was strongly associated with cemeteries since it was a scavenger which threatened to uncover human bodies and eat their flesh. The distinctive black color of Anubis did not have to do with the jackal but with the color of rotting flesh and with the black soil of the Nile valley, symbolizing rebirth.

Anubis was the god with the embalming of Osiris after he was killed by Seth, therefore Anubis became the god who watched over the mummifying of people when they died. Priests often wore a mask of Anubis during mummification ceremonies.

Material
Pewter Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper and other metals. It has a low melting point and is very easy to cast in molds. It has been used since ancient times for everything from jewelry to table wear and was once called the "poor mans silver". Generally pewter has a grayish/silver semi-dull finish, though this varies depending on the metals combined with the tin and can be colored black or other shades or plated with gold or silver. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic and will not tarnish or react in most conditions. Note it can break or crack if flexed multiple times and rings cannot be re-sized, though interior ring springs or other adjusters might be used.
