Letting Myself Go to the Dogs
I think I look pretty good in my jackal form. Check out that puffy tail. [Tomb of Tutankhamun, 18th Dynasty Egypt (ca. 1325BCE). Photograph taken in the Cairo Museum, 2007, by Jon Bodsworth]

Hard at work… or hardly working?
I know it looks like I'm not doing much here, but making sure Sennedjem's mummy was ready for his funeral wasn't easy. That tomb is tiny and it gets pretty hot inside. [Tomb of Sennedjem (Theban Tomb 1/TT1), Deir-el-Medina, West Bank Thebes, Egypt. Created in Egypt's 19th Dynasty (ca. 1250 BCE), discovered in 1886. Photograph 2007.]

Toga Party 125 BCE
Hanging out with some desert buddies at the fraternity. These Greeks are wild! [Roman Period statue, now in the Vatican Museum, Vatican City.]

Hail to the King!
Every once in a while, Horus the Younger lets me borrow his cool crowns. [From Egyptian Mythology and Egyptian Christianity by Samuel Sharpe (1863). Line drawing of an unspecified ancient wall carving]
