Anubis at Work

The Illustration Friday theme this week is "Expired", hence I was inspired for:
Anubis (aka Anpu) is the one that deals with the FINAL 'expiration'
Image source here, it is from a tomb, but I wasn't able to find out which one.

Anubis has an "Isis Knot" around his waist,
said to represent the "blood, magic, and power of Isis." (_Ancient Egyptian Magic_, pages 193-194)
but I suspect there are other more ancient associations!)
