Fragment of a reclining Anubis
From Giza, valley temple of Menkaura, Dynasty 4, reign of Menkaura, 2490-2472 B.C.E.
Greywacke, (a) .144 H. x .134 W. / (b) .112 H. x .086 W.
Harvard University—Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition 1911, MFA #11.721a-b
There are two fragments in the MFA collection. By the dimensions given, we know I've photographed
part 'a'. The museum website has photos of the other piece, the neck of the statuette. Such fine work, we can feel the 'about to spring' energy in those back limbs!
