Funerary hanging
Early 2nd century AD
Saqqara
On this large linen cloth are painted three figures, standing on the solar bark. Anubis, god of embalming, enfolds the deceased in the garment of the living, symbolizing the latter’s transformation into Osiris, on his right. Beside his head, a shaduf symbolizes the water needed for his survival. The purely Egyptian rendering of the figure of Anubis and the Hellenistic depictions of the deceased and of Osiris exemplify the mixed style characteristic of the art of Roman Egypt.
