I read this again to see if there was any more response … and I saw I’ve earlier overlooked the comment of Kmt Sesh on the possible meaning of the divine booth of Anubis. Embarassed
Interesting; I’ve always taught that it was a pylon , standing for the gate to the necropolis.

Maybe it is interesting to compare the earliest depiction of such a 'Anubis-booth' and the earliest forms of a pylon?

And I have also read that this iconography could be in connection with his title ‘he who is upon his mountain’ … or that the booth was a rendering of the embalming tent or maybe the tomb itself ... or that it was a funerary coffin of some sort, maybe – symbolically – containing the mummification utensils.

It was argued that the divine booth was the tool used for removing the old ruler. One simply could not outright kill the ruler of the people, so he was placed inside the booth, sealed within, and allowed to expire by natural causes.

Do you have more on that, or on the iconography of Anubis with his 'booth'?

The more intellectual member of the family - my son - told me it is: 'thought'.

Strange he is reading my posts on this forum.
