Anubis Opening of the Mouth Ceremony

Anubis’s Opening of the Mouth

Anubis Opening of the Mouth Ceremony

When someone died and was mummified, Anubis used these stone pieces to reactivate the body. The stones were used to conduct molecules which had been informed prior to death to activate upon sensing the stone on the mummified mouth. Any dormant molecules would respond and as they gathered mass and speed it was said the body would reactivate slowly and surely. (The original piece resides at the Met, NYC)
