The judgment of Anubis took place when someone died. Anubis would weigh their heart which represented their actions, choices and deeds against a feather. Depending on the outcome this would affect your place in the afterlife.
When creating this ring I was thinking it could be used in meditative practice. The gemstones that are pavé set with claws all around the band could be rubbed and used similar to Mala beads or Rosary beads to achieve a meditative state to consider and work through thoughts.
The band is cast in sterling silver and set with garnet cabochons. The heart in the center is carved from cow horn. The backing behind it is sea snake skin that has been 23k gold leafed to give it both texture and vibrant color. The lion heads at each of the four corners of the ring are inspired by gargoyles on cathedrals.
This ring is a size 9 and is quite hefty since it is solid sterling.
While this piece is a one of a kind, I do welcome customs and variations based on this.
