Book of the Dead: The papyrus of Hunefer. Above Hunefer kneeling before a table of offerings in adoration, in presence of fourteen gods, seated in order of judges. Below the Judgement, or weighing of the conscience; the jakal-headed Anubis examines the pointer of the balance, wherein the heart (conscience) of the deceased is being weighed against the feather of Maat, symbolical of law or of right and truth; on the left a jakal-headed deity is leading the deceased by the left hand. On the right are the monster Ammut, the Devourer, and the Ibis-headed God Thoth, the scibe of the Gods, who notes down the result of the trial. On the right Hunefer is ushered by Horus into the presence of the God Osiris enthroned within a shrine. Behind him are Isis and Nephtys. In front a lotus flower on which stand the four children of Horus, or gods of the cardinal points. New Kingdom (19th Dynasty). EA9901
