Anubis Prepares for His Grand Entrance

          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!
