This mask represents the head of the black jackal, Anubis, the god of cemetery and mummification. He wears the striped headdress called nemes; a large part of it is missing but it still has some golden stripes. The eyebrows and whiskers are also gilded. The eyes are in a very good condition.

This mask was worn by the priest, who was responsible for the embalming, during the process of mummification.

The ears of Anubis are always erect to show the thoughtful attitude of the jackal, as the protector god of the necropolis.
