Mystery has its own mysteries, and there are gods above gods. We have ours, they have theirs. That is what’s known as infinity.

— Jean Cocteau, Collected Works, vol. 5 (1948): Anubis, in The Infernal Machine, act 2 (1932).

I’ve started a series of paintings of Egyptian gods, because I find them quite fascinating. Anubis is the first of eight I have sketched up; he was fun to complete.
