In fact, I hope that’s what it is. Otherwise, I have to assume that it’s a quick picture of Anubis, the jackal-headed Egyptian god of mummification, experiencing a painful, yet strangely contemplative, bowel movement. And I’m pretty sure I can’t handle that right now.
With a tricky color scheme like this, black, red halos, hovering in a minty-green void, the silvery dribbles could mean, well, anything. In this case, I believe they represent an abundance of icing drizzled forth upon this god of the underworld by a benevolent, if somewhat arbitrary, Horus. I want to think this because I’ve read Egyptian creation stories, and a generous helping of icing is better than any possible alternative.
