<p>A small ornament showing a seated Anubis, the ancient Egyptian god of the dead. <br /> <br /> Here Anubis is shown on a golden plinth adorned with hieroglyphs. The ornament is based on a statue found at the tomb of Tutankhamun, who was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty. <br /> <br /> Anubis is one of the best-known gods of ancient Egypt. He was the guardian and protector of the dead. The ancient Egyptians believed that the preservation of the body and the use of sweet-smelling herbs and plants would help the deceased because Anubis would sniff the mummy and only let the pure move on to paradise. <br /> <br /> Anubis was usually depicted as a jackal (a long-legged wild dog). He is also sometimes depicted as a man with the head of a jackal and alert ears, often wearing a red ribbon and holding a whip. <br /> <br /> The ornament measures approximately 8cm tall by 11cm wide and comes in a gift box.</p>
