Hieroglyphic papyrus with handmade painting of Anubis, seated on the shrine with carrying poles, was found at the entrance to the treasury of Tutís tomb.
The Ancient Egyptians loved dogs so much, they even wanted to take them with them in the afterlife and so they painted them on their tomb walls. In one myth, Anubis restored eternal. He is the god of mummification. It is believed that it leads the dead in their next life and guards their tombs. The chief embalmer would wear a mask of Anubis to represent his presence during the mummification process.
