Bolo tie for Anubis: guardian of the scales
Description
Jewelry by Michelle Verhoeven for Spring 2014 in ART3321. Copper, enamel, watercolor enamel, P-1 overglaze, leather cord. A bolo tie made for Anubis. He is not only the shepherd of souls into the afterlife, but he also weighs the heart against the goddess of truth, Ma'at, who is depicted as a feather. If the heart weighs heavier than the feather, then that soul is sent to the underworld never to live again.
