Statuette of a Jackal

56.5.88

About this object

This statuette could represent either of the gods Anubis or Wepwawet, both of whom could be depicted as a jackal-headed man. Anubis was never depicted as a canine standing on all fours, whereas Wepwawet is.

This solid cast bronze stauette is in a walking pose with really good detailing on the face and kilt. The left arm is missing from just above the elbow.
