To pass from life to the realm of dead - the Afterlife - was seen to be a 'moment of truth' for the ancient Egyptians. At this moment he or she faced judgment. From the New Kingdom into the Roman period ,some provisions could be made for the suitably resourced Egyptian to meet this trial of judgment with the help of spells or utterances included in the Book of the Dead, a copy of which would be buried with the deceased.

Here is a section of a painted papyrus,
Book of the Dead, Papyrus of Ani: Ani's Judgment.

The heart of the dead man is weighed in the scales of the balance against the feather of righteousness.

Hi Gisele,
I did some research, but I don't know if I can tell you everythig.

The god Anubis is a jackal-headed, human bodied, kneeling deity.

To the right of the balance stands Thoth, the scribe of the gods.

Behing Thoth sits a monster ready to consume Ani's heart if he fails to pass the test.

At the top of the scene,( I won't be able to tell you who everyone is), but here is what I found:

Re-Harakhty, Atun, Shu, Tefnut, Geb, Nut, Isis and Naephtys, Horus and Hathor.

Ani and his wife Tutu are on the left.
