A handmade silver pendant necklace inspired by the ancient Egyptian jackal-headed god Anubis.

The necklace is part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt.

This pendant is made in the UK from fine silver suspended on a sterling silver chain.

Anubis is one of the most well-known of the ancient Egyptian gods. Worshipped as the guardian and protector of the dead, Anubis was usually depicted as a jackal (a long-legged wild dog) or a wolf. He is also sometimes depicted as having the body of a man and the head of a dog. As can be seen in art from the time, Anubis watched over the mummification process before conducting the soul through the underworld. He was present for the Weighing of the Heart ceremony and determined whether the deceased was worthy to enter the realm of the dead.

A history-inspired gift for a dog lover.
