A lovely carving of Anubis - God of Mummification.
In ancient Egypt the  jackal was often hated because of its shadow at graves. People hoped to be able to end its activities by making it a god - thus Anubis became the god of death and had the form of a dog of jackal. This carving shows Anubis, protective god of mummies in human form with the head of a god.  Originally Anubis was the protector of mummies against evil power. In later times, when Osiris also functioned as god of the dead, he became a servant and from then on performed the weighing of the heart ceremony, against the feather (Ma'at) at the court of the dead.
I have tried to show this carving as much as possible with the photographs. Any further questions and/or queries do please contact me and I will, of course, reply.
Thank you for looking.
