Small and precious, this handmade tagua nut carving recalls jackal-shaped figures in the Mets collection of ancient Egyptian art. Anubis, the god of mummification, is often represented as a jackal, while the jackal-headed deity Duamutef was one of the Four Sons of Horus and was under the protection of the goddess Neith. Tagua nut is the seed of a tropical tree; when carved, its smoothness is akin to that of ivory.
