Carrying Chest Surmounted by Anubis 187_3110
This carrying chest is surmounted by the Anubis, a jackal-headed god made of wood, varnished black, and wrapped in linen.

The details of the animal are gilded except for the claws, which are made of silver. The eyes are made of alabaster and obsidian. The chest is in the form of a shrine, decorated with friezes of the Djed and Tyet signs, which are symbols of stability and protection.

The chest had been placed on a sledge with four carrying poles. The roof of the shrine acts as a lid.

Numerous amulets in faience, eight pectorals, and alabaster vases and cups were placed in the compartments inside.
