1Anubis is often portrayed as a jackal, a canine that lives in the desert and that could be seen roaming around the graves. It was Anubis that took care of the deceased Osiris’ body and prepared it for rebirth. Anubis is therefore the god of mummification and lord of the burial ground. This Anubis is dated to the New Kingdom based on the hieratic graffiti found the statue.
