Anubis

If you ever get a chance to see any of the exhibits from King Tut, it is worth your time and trouble. My family and I had that opportunity a few years ago on a trip to Dallas. Outside of the museum was a rather large statue of Anubis, the jackal-headed god associated with mummification and theafterlife in ancient Egyptian religion. This guy was rather large standing two or three stories tall. His size and presence set the tone for the entire exhibit. It was an unusual site to see among the buildings of downtown Dallas.
