Anubis, protector of the gates to the Underworld, seated atop a chest, detail, found in the Tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62). 

Anubis or Anpu was the god of embalming and the dead. Since jackals were often seen in cemeteries, the ancient Egyptians believed that Anubis watched over the dead. Anubis was the god who helped to embalm Osiris after he was killed by Seth.

This wooden sculpture of Anubis was probably on the top of a box for the four canopic jars in which the dead person’s viscera were stored after the body had been embalmed.
