The Weighing of the Heart

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Welcome mortal. Your soul’s journey has come to it's final test. Is your heart lighter than a feather, or is it weighed heavy with sin? The Keeper of the Balance is all seeing. Woe be unto you for he can not be tricked or bribed. The Wicked shall perish here.

When I hopped over to the Fantasy Gacha and spotted the Ensepulcher series by Papermoon, I squeaked and started hitting that machine like mad. I'm a huge Ancient Egypt fan. Anubis is my favorite deity. The detail on this gacha is wonderful and of course the Scales of Truth is a powerful symbol. Many ideas from Ancient Egypt are still with us today such as the commandants, going into the light, the judgement of the dead, and an idyllic afterlife. They believed when a person died, their soul journeyed through the underworld. If they completed all tests they would reach the end and stand on trail before Anubis. They would recite the 42 Commandments of Ma'at and proclaim to have not broken any of the laws. Anubis however is not fooled by lies. He would take your heart (which thought to be the seat of your soul), and weigh it against the feather of Ma'at. If your heart was heavier than the feather, your heart would be destroyed and thus you are annihilated. If you pass the test, your soul is then allowed to enter the blessed afterlife in the Elysium Fields. (Yes, that is Egyptian too!) ... The Papermoon set has all the tools used in the Egyptian mummification process such as the 4 Canopic Jars that hold the internal organs, and a cranial hook to pull out your brains out through your nose. Hey if you want your body to remain preserved for all time, you have to make a few sacrifices. lol

So how does Anubis rip your heart out? How about the badass Azrael gloves by Remarkable Oblivion? They reminds me of Horus with the feather details and talon like claws. The Azrael gloves come with a Hud that will switch the colors from black, gold, and bloody. You can also pose the fingers, and thats not all, they animate in wonderfully scary way too! LOVE IT! You can find them at the Dark Style Fair which opens May 17th.

The rest of my outfit comes from pieces I have collected over the years, I have several different Anubis characters. This one wears the Hawk hair by Wasbi Pills, Leg Harness by .Shi, Wolfen eyes and makeup By Snow, sandals by Pure Poison, and Slink Claws with cool foot pads for Slink male flat foot. For Throwback Thursday fun, my non-mesh items are the Anubis Ears and the Anubis staff from the Tokushi Anubis, collar and cuffs by Illusions, and kilt by Shai. The Pyramid and firebowls are from the HR.PyramidePalace by Han Roffo. You can't get it anymore, but the dark Pyramid dungeon is still available.
