Egyptian God of the Dead Anubis

Anubis, God of the Underworld, represented with a head of a jackal. The origin of this God lay in the fact that jackals could be heard howling in the desert to the west of the Nile at sunset-at the time when burials took place. This beautiful Anubis Trinket box is intricately carved to capture the fine detail of this Egyptian God of the Dead.
