Chest for funerary equipment



Chest for funerary equipment
EL-ASSASIF
Painted wooden chest shaped like a temple, originally had the figure of a reclining jackal, the god Anubis, on the lid. On the front is the head of the deceased above a schematic rendering of the tomb; on the back is a scarab. The sides depict the standing jackal-headed funerary god Anubis. The inscription lists the name and title of the buried person. The chest comes from a burial in the tomb of Ankh-hor in El-Assasif.
