New Jersey Artist Series: Sonia Chusit – Anubis Series

Feb 03, 1986 - Mar 11, 1986

Sonia Chusit, Anubis Series No. 2, 1985, wood, clay, paint, 11 ½” x 12” x 8”


Drawing from Egyptian mythology, Sonia Chusit writes: “Anubis was the jackal-headed guardian of the underworld who conducted the dead to judgment and was called ‘Keeper of All Secrets’… But these myths only had meaning for me when I changed them to reflect my own intuitions and fears. The jackal became a dog, sometimes fierce and unapproachable, and at other times passive, with his head bound by bandages… While my imagery is personal, I try to communicate the mystery of the unknown, something thatall ofus have thought about at one time or another.”Includes the work of Sonia Chusit.
