"Mustang," aka "Bluecifer," now has a new friend at Denver International Airport: a 26-foot-tall, seven-ton replica of the jackal-headed Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead. Workers placed the statue outside the main terminal at Denver International Airport Wednesday to promote the upcoming King Tut exhibit at the Denver Art Museum, according to Fox 31. While the idea is nice, the average-person-on-the-street reviews aren't exactly glowing. "If it's the god of death, I wouldn't exactly be putting it in front of the airport," says passenger Keith Mears. For Josh Meyers, inviting Anubis to the airport is simply "bad voodoo." According to Wikipedia, "Anubis was associated with the mummification and protection of the dead for their journey into the afterlife." So, perhaps something's askew behind the scenes of "Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs," which opens June 29---maybe a fear of bad voodoo. But for now, Denver's airport has another statue. The kicker? Like the controversial snarling, red-eyed mustang, Anubis is also blue.
