The ancient Egyptians decorated their tombs, homes and sacrificial altars with figurines such as this one, hoping for protection and blessings from the holy gods.
Anubis is the ancient Egyptian god of death, mummification, embalming, the afterlife, cemeteries, tombs, and the Underworld. He was one of the most frequently depicted and mentioned ancient Egyptian gods.
He is depicted here in his classic form as a Jackal. This is because the ancient Egyptians associated Jackals with death, because they lurked around cemeteries ate decomposing flesh. Thus, by making Anubis the patron deity of jackals, they hoped to protect the bodies of the deceased from being devoured.
