Lladro - Anubis : 01008439
Series: Open Edition
Size: 14.25 inches
A big size piece in an unusual style for Lladro, depicting Anubis, the god from Ancient Egypt. It is a replica of the one in the Egyptian Museum founded in King Tutankhamen Tomb guarding his mummy. Anubis is the Greek name for a jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the afterlife in Egyptian mythology. The Anubis black colour was not a sorrowful and fearful colour in Ancient Egypt, but rather a fertility and prosperity colour, since the black soil left by the river helped good crops.
