While at docent training yesterday with Dr. Peter Lacovara on all the new pieces in the Egyptian, Nubian and Near Eastern galleries at the Carlos Museum, I took the opportunity to start taking notes for my "Anubis Tour."
After all, Anubis Speaks! releases in just a matter of weeks.
Of course, I have my favorites at the museum--particularly, Anubis at the Weighing of the Heart ceremony on the side of Tanakhtnettahat's coffin--but I discovered a bunch of other depictions that I normally breezed right past, including this Ptolemaic depiction (above) and many jackal carvings on on tomb reliefs (below).
Can't wait to have a howling good time talking about my favorite canine-headed god!
