Inlay in the Form of a Jackal


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Jackals were linked with the dead, most probably because they were present in the desert regions near to the cemeteries, where they searched for bones. The most popular jackal-shaped god was Anubis, who was also depicted with a jackal's head on a human body. This inlay depicts a black recumbent jackal with an attentively raised head. His eyes are made from white and black glass; a red collar adorns his neck.
