Egyptian God of the Dead Anubis #060

Spiritkeepers Stone #060, SOLD
I love the variety of inspiration mysterious Egypt has to offer a modern crafts-person! With the head of a jackal (dog like animal), Anubis comes to life on this Spiritkeepers pebble in an original hand drawn hieroglyph like design, (See also About Anubis). It can take some time to find a stone with the right shape to create His long muzzle and towering ears, but as you can see this one is nearly canine shaped without a painted image! It can be carried as a pocket pal, an addition to a mo-jo medicine bag, used as a deity figure on a Pagan altar top, and even as a light paperweight to keep spell papers in place. The stone has been sealed with several layers of durable clear varathane, so it's safe for display on most all surfaces and should be able to withstand being housed with other stones or abrasive things an owner might collect.
