An early Halloween,
On Wednesday, workers set up a 26-foot tall, seven-ton replica of Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead, nearby the main terminal. The statue is here to promote the King Tut exhibit at the Denver Art Museum.
The statue of Anubis, the Egyptian god of embalming and friend of the dead, has been making the rounds, promoting a traveling King Tut exhibit that’s already been to London, New York, and Dallas.
But its latest stop, outside the main terminal of the Denver International Airport, isn’t going over so well, reports KDVR. “If it’s the god of death, I wouldn’t exactly be putting it in front of the airport,” said one passenger. “Bad voodoo,” declared another
The replica stands just a short distance from the notorious statue of the ‘Mustang’ by Luis Jimenez who died in 2006 when a large piece of ‘Mustang’ fell on him in his studio.
