Anpu is depicted in yellow and white suspending the glyph of the planet Mercury between his palms.
"Tradition declared that Anubis [Anpu] embalmed the body of Osiris [Ausar] . . . and it was believed that his work was so thoroughly well performed . . . that it resisted the influences of time and decay." It is the work of the embalmer to preserve the body, and one of the keys to preventing the body from decay is to remove its moisture. It is well known that dry environments such as the dessert have preserved bodies from decay for thousands of years.
According to Chinese Medicine, the Lungs are said to open into the nose. Therefore, the health of the Lungs is reflected externally in the nose, and thus, it plays a role in determining how keen our sense of smell is. The canine species to which dogs and jackals belong have a strong sense of smell. Interestingly, the Large Intestine receives digestive waste from the Small Intestine and transforms the waste from liquid to solid state, which is in harmony with the concept of the removal of moisture. Thus, Anpu corresponds to the Lung/Large Intestine meridian pair of Chinese Medicine.
Dryness also possesses the quality of rigidity, which allows an object to define its own form. This is in harmony with words and their defining nature. In the West African tradition he is known as Eshu, "The Divine Messenger". According to Ifa, Eshu is also a trickster figure, and takes on the characteristics and personality of one who is cunning, clever, and witty. In Native American Spirituality, the coyote possesses these same attributes. Astrologically, it is the planet Mercury.
