Description

A wooden openwork figure of a jackal god, possibly Anubis, missing its feet, arms, and muzzle. The wood is coated in a thin layer of gesso, which is painted yellow, blue, green, red, and black. It is perhaps part of an openwork mummy board, which were common during the Ramesside Period and Twenty-first Dynasty. It is part of the Woking Collection, which arrived to the Egypt Centre on long-term loan from Woking College in 2012 (Engel 2020).
